one step too far


Senior Member
How do you say....."that would be a step too far."?

Context: a child has behaved badly and his mother punishes him by sending him to his room. She is discussing this with her friend/neighbour and says she is so angry she is inclined to keep him in his room for another four hours....the neighbour replies, "no, I think that would be a step too far."

Sobrepasar , un paso demasiado?

    "No, eso sería demasiado"

    or closer to the original:

    "No, eso sería llegar demasiado lejos"
