Snobbish moms, to avoid or not?
Hi there. Well, it is funny, mom's of this generation, isn't it? I'm one too, don't get me wrong. But we tend to over involve ourselves in our kids social lives.
What the other moms or mom is dealing with is hurt feelings with her own child. If your son is then excluding with play at school, that is something to talk to your child about. That we ALL are friends and all can play--- especially at that young age. And I've always had a strict rule with my kids, they are not to talk about play dates with other kids to their friends. It absolutely DOES hurt feelings. So, my kids don't talk about when they play with someone else to their friends and have learned this.
Don't request anything about his class. Try not to be so very involved with every aspect of what happens with his life socially. I get that moms of young kids have to facilitate to a certain extent the get togethers but let things happen more naturally with your child and his friendships.
By second grade, you can no longer say "how about we have X over" when he'd rather have Y. They have distinct preferences by then. And your job is to begin to understand that our children is separate from us. I have son going into third grade and a son going into fourth grade. I've been where you are at and it's not worth it. Don't get too wrapped up in all of this as it is fleeting.
Again, yes, it would be outrageous to request the other class. By the way, as your son gets older, other things could happen such as he is in class with a child who bullies him. Reserve your overinvolvement in his class placement for something like that when it will really matter.
Kids have immature emotions and if you think about your sons good buddies who have hurt feelings, then it might help you know where the other mom is coming from. Read More At : ...
