They even had a few who would watch what car the parents drove as an indication of wealth. I found it so pathetic and disgusting.

    What I want for my kid is to make sure she learns in class. So if she's sitting next to a friend and all they do is chat, move them apart, yes. If I find out there is a kid in the playground bullying my kid, I'll say 'hey, how about you don't play with John today if he's going to be silly.'

    There's a degree I understand but what she's doing is ridiculous. Those poor kids.
    Lol I find myself looking at peoples cars but then look at mine and sigh because mine is the crappiest one hahaha Hope no one judges me coz i dont have some flash freakin off road 4WD or suped up commodore. I just have a plan ol' station wagon and I lovesit <3

    I hung out with the worst of the worst in school and didn't really get dragged down by their behaviour... but I like to consider myself exceptional... and I saw many other peers be dragged down.

    When DS is a teen I hope he doesn't hang out with kids with drugs/alcohol/other problems. I do hope I can lecture him enough to put him off these kinds of things. I always wanted a kid who would be more likely to be into star trek and chess but so far it's not looking good.

    I think the woman in the article is doing her children a massive disservice and preventing them from getting to know a lot of wonderful, creative, kind people simply because they have a different name or are from a poorer background. Good luck to them.

    Occasionally they have to breed with a common person so the kids don't end up with 2 heads.
    There is nothing upper class about it...

    In fact, it is a distinctly 'lower class' trait to be so concerned about such matters and insecure with your place in the social standing hierarchy.

    I think it is hilarious, I haven't laughed so hard in ages. Somehow I doubt that anyone would be the poorer for not having snobs like that in their lives. teehee!

    These kids will rebel when they are teens to escape their mothers choke hold.

    I just feel sorry for her.

    Whatever happened to her worrying about important values like respect, kindness , compassion etc?

    Yes money is important but so are a lot of other things.

    I think she's just scared....

    After reading the second article that was posted, it sounds to me as she's a bit of a trashy w.h0re who is now trying to make up for that fact by acting like a snob and acting like she's super mum.

    I really do feel for her kids. They don't stand much of a chance
