Help?! Is my child in the wrong, so conflicted
So we went out today with a friend to a local park, my DS is 3y/o and friends DD is 4y/o they generally get along quite well, however today my friend ended up having a huge go at me about my parenting/my son.
Her DD basically just wanted to play at the digging/sand toy area the whole time and would crack it everytime DS left, and apparently I "should have made him stay put because he shouldn't be off playing with other kids, equipment, it was our play date etc".
He did play there for a very long time initially, but for god sakes it's a park?! They're supposed to be running around from thing to thing. DS and another child even went over to try and get her to come play, which was only met with a tantrum, running and crying to mum and the cycle repeats.
I brushed off the comments she made, didn't respond and made DS play there for the 10 minutes we stayed after.
I've now recieved a text from her asking for an apology?! I don't even know what to do, I already feel like I did my son a huge disservice by not standing up to her, but then again I don't want to lose the friendship
