My 9 yr old son made a new friend at his sport the other day and it happens to be a female which is fine by me.
They chatted and talked for a while, then her mum approached my husband and asked for his phone number so the kids can catch up and maybe call each other which my husband gave her his number.
When my son came home he told me he had made a new friend and he told me all about her. I said that was excellent and that I could not wait to meet her the next week. My husband received a message that afternoon from the girl mum, and I thought wow that is pretty soon after just meeting. I understand the girl goes to a small school and may not have a lot of friends but my mother instinct went that is pretty soon after just meeting I would have thought a few weeks of catching up at sport before she sent a text message. My husband told me she seems like a very strong forward girl.
My sons poppy thinks I am being a bit crazy and does not think anything is wrong with it, he had a chat to the girls mum and is happy to let them spend sometime together,I don’t see anything wrong with them being friends and catching up at the sporting ground and maybe catch up somewhere else in the future but not after they have just meet.
As a mum I just found it a bit stalker like and a bit quick to be making contact after only meeting a few hours earlier.
Am I being too overprotective?
