    Default Mother demands friend pay for shoes damaged at play date

    This is crazy to me on a few levels:

    Thoughts?

    I cannot believe this mum thinks this is a fair request?! Why dress your daughter in such pricey footwear for a play date?

    Default Mother demands friend pay for shoes damaged at play date

    I wouldn't even spend that amount on new tyres for my car let alone for a pair of shoes my dd will grow out of in 3.2 seconds!

    I buy clothes and shoes expecting them to get lost before we get home from the shops and I would never ever expect another parent to be accountable for them on a play date

    Honestly, if a child was at my house and their shoes got ruined, which some scuff marks and pen marks is NOT what I call ruined, I mean like if they got cut etc, I would feel obligated to replace them. But I would also feel it was reasonable for my friend to send their kids in $10-$20 shoes. Not crazy expensive shoes.

    I saw that she claimed she had cheaper shoes in her bag or whatever. Why not put her in them. Why is it another parents responsibility to change her daughters shoes to the "most appropriate". A parent is who is responsible for their child and their child's belongings. You can't expect somebody else to know when to change their shoes. If a friend dropped their kid to me and said "these are expensive shoes, you have to put her in the cheaper shoes in her bag" I would tell them to change them right now and take the expensive shoes with them.

    Best comment I heard about all this.

    "She should put her daughter in a glass case and dust her off twice a day"

    I don't even know where to begin with this one. What idiot buys their kids $500+ shoes period? They grow so fast, it's just consumerism gone made. And to bill the mother?? Then there is that letter That woman has the hallmarks of NPD. Talk about issues of grandiosity and self entitlement.

    I feel incredibly sorry for her daughter who may end up not being invited on playdates because of this. Get the stick out of you a** lady.

    I actually read this yesterday and felt so sorry for this child. She's not a mannequin to be dressed up and presented for show. In the letter she says she expects her daughter to be 'pristine' that poor poor little girl.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this comes out later to be a hoax, a way of getting her and her daughters name out there.

    The pubic hair dress mustn't have been enough.
