I just lost a heart for "elle a laissé courir son fils" instead of "elle a laissé son fils courir." I'm pretty sure both word orders are interchangeable.

I lost a heart for this too and would love to know why we are wrong (or whether we might be right).

I'm a native speaker, and I'm fairly certain we're right. There could be some subtlety that I'm missing, though.

It is grammatically correct to say " elle a laisser courir son fils". What happens when corrections are suggested?
