Dear Woman.NG Readers,
My eight year old daughter pushed one of her schoolmates during their break time at school. The boy was standing in the way and obstructing her friends and her. Instead of them to ignore him, my daughter pushed him. He fell into the gutter and broke his hand. We feel very bad for what she has done, I have cried my eyes out many times because the boy was badly injured. We have scolded and disciplined her for it and even made her write an apology letter to the boy and his parents.
The boy was in the hospital for some time, his mother even lost her job in the process. The problem now is that the parents of the boy are so mad at us, they have been threatening and cursing us for not footing the hospital bill. They are demanding 500,000, we offered to pay half of it, because the truth is we cannot afford everything but they don’t want to hear it. I feel very bad, I don’t know what to do.
