Eek! What a horribly judgemental person! I understand discouraging dangerous friendships (as pp have stated). But declining a party invite because of the venue and invite??
One day this mother will come to the realisation that her children are most probably average...I just hope it's before she poisons their minds
I wonder what would happen if a Victoria or Henry were late for school?...her small mind would probably explode
Has impeccably high standards...
lets children put dirty shoes all over couch.
Her children are likely to miss out on some wonderful friendships because of their mothers superficial judgements.
One of the cool things about friendship is making a geniune connection with another person. Instead, these kids will have their friends chosen for them. It's a little sad.
Meh. I avoid DS playing with children who I think are a bad influence. There was one child who behaved in a way that I felt was disgustingly bad behaviour towards adults who a lot of other people would probably brush of as 'just being a kid'.
But DS doesn't see that child anymore because he started exhibiting some of those behaviours himself and no matter how many times I tried to discourage it, he kept doing it. That might be fine for their family and their (lack of) discipline style, but I refuse to tolerate it in my own child.
If I'm fair I absolutely hated being spoken to and treated with such disrespect by that child myself so we probably would have stayed away anyway lmao.
So I guess it's a milder version of what that woman does. I don't exactly hunt out 'good' influence children for DS but I certainly try to avoid bad influence ones!
She might run into some trouble if other mothers adopt her attitude and decide her children are not the best to be around.
Argh what a small-minded woman. Her children will grow up with such a superficial view of the world.
And I'm going to contradict my self by saying this: Her two daughters don't really have those upper class, stereotypical pretty looks .... Maybe she recognises this and is trying to push them into the right crowds and make them excel in their school work so they aren't perceived as "ordinary" ?
That's just my take on what may be going through her head.
