    Default Sometimes I absolutely hate...

    being a single mother. I know I am in a relationship, but's we've only been together a few months and it's still new. So I am still a single mother.

    Today Nathan hit a little girls at the library when my back was turned (God forbid I cannot always watch him) and the lady came up to me and called me a "b!tch" of a mother" yeah, really made my day! It's not as though I TOLD him to hit her daughter. And then started saying I should be ashamed of myself and not have kids.

    It's not like I can just leave my kids with their dad or anyone whenever I need to go anywhere either.

    Yeah no excuse though. I would never speak to anyone like that I don't care what sort of day I was having. Maybe in my mind I'd be saying a whole heap of things lol. My kids aren't perfect and I am not perfect myself, but if they play up I do say sorry but after what she said...nup.

    Wow, what an awful thing to say to you! A lot of kids go through a stage of hitting, and there are better ways to deal with it than verbally abusing the mother of a child who just hit another. Very immature of her.

    She sent me to tears. I did't let he see that though.

    Sorry, I meant it isn't a reflection of you or your kids, it's about her and her only.

    How awful

    A few months ago a 2 year old hit my DS (he was 4), and I just said to DS "Give the kid a bit of space!" I saw it a mile away, DS was sort of getting in this kid's face a bit so the kid hit DS. Frankly, he had it coming! Sure, it's not that nice for kids to hit each other, but it is not worth reducing the other mother to tears.

    All she had to ask was for you to stop your son hitting . Didn't have to tear you to shreds!!
    Kids are kids and unless he beat the crap outta the other one I wouldn't lose sleep over it

    That was really mean of her.. She should've asked you in a more respectful manner.

    that was compeletely wrong of her!
    one of our little friends is a biter/pusher/hair puller, and we all just watch for signs and try to prevent it.
    dd has been 'bashed' by him a few times, but we use it as a lesson in 'pulling hair is yucky' when she gets rough!
