Sister Mad b/c I Didn't Keep Mouth Shut!
My sister is going through a terrible divorce. She is taking the high road and not saying anything bad to her son about her ex. He is bad-mouthing her to their son all the time. My sister and I are very close. She is my best friend. Our sons spend a lot of time together (in kindergarten). I have noticed her son being mean to my son and this has been noticed by my older kids, too. My nephew seems angry. My sister has told me many times that she is worried about her son's behavior. Tonight at dinner my son was crying about a mean thing my nephew said to him. This has been going on for about three months. I have never said a word to her before. I called my sister and told her of this specific thing my nephew said. She asked me if I was worried about her son and why. I told her I love him and was worried about him. I gave her two specific examples that my older children told me. She basically said she doesn't really believe me and intimated she never said that her son was angry. My sister told me she was going to bring her son to a counselor but I know she feels bullied into this by me. I have only her and her son's best intersests at heart. My nephew is 5, and I'm afraid that if he doesn't talk to someone, he is going to end up permanently angry. I know I did the wrong thing and shouldn't have said anything to her. How can I work this out tomorrow? I have never written to a site like this before, but I absolutely can't talk about this with anyone out of loyalty to my beloved sister. Help!
