Does anybody else find that going to play groups is A LOT like going back to highschool? I am a 23 year old single mom and I find a lot of "older" mom's offer me advise that I really don't need. If my son is upset about something they say "oh I don't know how you handle that" As if your kid doesn't have a melt down? They gave bananas for a snack yesterday and because he was consipated and hadn't pooped in a day I opted not to give him any-oh the looks I got! The main thing I can't handle is these woman talking gossip about other mom's (most of the time these mom's aren't even there to defend themselves!) I thought we where taking our kids to play and learn and sozialize..not for us to sit around and bash other parents and their kids!! I enjoy the time away from my son knowing that I am still there and he can go explore but sometimes I just want to leave the mom's and play with him (which quite frankly I can do at home without having to put on make-up) Does anyone else have this go on at their playgroups?
