Hello, I'm new to this group and I need advice badly before I say something I probably shouldn't..
Here's what happened. I have been friends with this woman for 5 years . We have socialized with our husbands and kids many times. Our boys have been very close friends since kindergarten and they are now in 4th grade. 6 months ago my son came to me and told me that her son was bullying other kids and sometimes him. He said their friends are tired of his behaviour and no longer wanted to be friends with him. I struggled with the idea of telling her because I knew she would not take the news well. Finally my son actually asked me to talk to her because things were just getting worse. So I told her in the nicest possible way what was going on and that her boy was being mean to other kids and was in jeopardy of losing all his friends. She did not believe me and told me that she was going to do nothing about it and not worry about it at all.. I was floored at her response but left her with the info thinking her as my friend would come around. It's been 6 months and not a word and now her and her husband blatantly ignore my kids and school functions are now extremely awkward. Obviously our friendship is over but I want to call her out on her immature behaviour and want all this petty crap to end. How would you deal with this situation??
