ezs note:  Oy veh.  This ain't fun, is it?  Okay, here are a few suggestions.  First, here's what I don't suggest.  It doesn't help to burrow into your tribe or get into a shouting match.  You may have to relax a bit to do it, but if you are approached by an angry person, calmly explain your side of the story.  Remember, he/she may be venting anger, but he/she is just afraid for his/her child.  If he/she calms down a bit, work together on a solution.  If he/she remains angry, you may leave, but first, open the door for the time when he/she calms down. No, this ain't a magic wand.  But it is constructive rather than destructive.
