My child suffered a corneal abrasion when a playmate threw something and it hit her in the eye. We still don't know how bad the injury is (her sight is not 100% in that eye) yet. I believe this was accidental (neither 5 yr. old says it was intentional). Still, the time, energy, copays, etc. are beginning to add up.
I would have offered to cover any medical expenses, had my child caused the injury. And, if the family refused to accept anything, we would have delivered a kid-created care package (a drawing, maybe a stuffed animal...). I'm feeling a bit dismissed by the other parent/family.
Am I off base here?
