MOM TALK: Accidents Happen

From our friends at

It’s your worst nightmare.  The child you are babysitting falls down the stairs and clunks his head.  Or accidentally ingests peanut butter when he has a nut allergy.  Or breaks a leg while riding his bike.  Suddenly, you are not only dealing with an injured child, but you also have to deal with an upset parent.  To some extent, this scenario has probably happened to all of us.  After all, accidents happen, but that doesn’t make you feel any less guilty.  So, how did you deal?  Mindy Roberts of The Mommy Blog wants to know what you do when someone else’s kid gets hurt on your watch.

Has another person’s child been hurt on your watch?  How did you feel, and how did the other parent react? Tell us in the comments section below.
