arghhh! im just a bit annoyed and irritated about what i saw at rhyme time at our local library this morning. We go every week but this particular day was a joke.....
The mum's are so bloody rude....
They seem to be some sort of mother's group and they all meet up for rhyme time, there are about 8 of them with kids aged 2-4 some have little bubba's that come too.
Anyways, why do they feel the need to talk to eachother across the room as if it's "theirs" and they do whatever they want?
The freaking chit chat that goes on for the entire half hour between the mum's....they force their kids to go sit up the front while they hold mother's group chatter, complete with latte's in hands up the back of the session. When the kids come up to them they flog them off and tell them to go back and sit down and be quiet....ummmmm can they take their own advice??? How is ur child ment to know how to be quiet and listen when ur up the back laughing and carrying on with ur friends during a story??? Great role models.
One mum came late to the session and another MOTHER (from this clique) yelled out "charlieeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!" across the freaking room OMG! hugging him and asking the little boy questions ALL while a stroy was being told!!!!! WTF?!
The lady that runs the session constantly looks up at them while she's singing....they dont even join in. I can sense she is gonna explode at them one of these days lol
What's happened to common courtesy?
The mother's behaviour at rhyme time is appauling. I cant believe this even happens! It's as if its a little break for them!
So, we have changed they day we go now!
What do you do about rhyme time and the mother's who like to talk up the back between themselves??
