Honestly, I tried to make my son feel as guilty as I could, because I wanted him to realize that he really did the boy wrong. My son apologized AGAIN - but with understanding of why it was wrong - and their friendship is stronger because of it (he's actually supposed to be coming over for a sleepover this weekend).

Would you call his mother and maybe ask him to write an apology? I know his mother well. She will die a million deaths if I tell her. She would undoubtedly make him write an apology to Grace. But is that overkill? He was corrected and apologized. Isn't that enough? Do I really need to drag his mother into this? Will a letter from him ease her heartache or just drag out the problem?
