Mum shares how she has been cut off by a friend because of something her six-year-old daughter said.
The mum shared that one day the woman’s daughter made the comment about her friend’s son, four, not having a father.
She claims it wasn’t said in a nasty way, simply as a matter of fact.
The mums overheard and her friend asked her to tell her daughter not to say anything like that again.
She apologised and passed the message onto her little girl.
But she got a message later on saying the little boy was extremely upset.
Writing on the parenting website Mumsnet she said: Dropped by a friend because of what my child said – “I got a message telling me her son was inconsolable and so was she, at what was said. “I’ve not heard a word since from her, and I can imagine she is telling everyone how awful we are.
“I know it’s a sensitive topic for her but you can’t expect children to understand.”
Her post has since been removed.
Kids sure do have a big mouth, sometimes that off switch would be very handy. No filter at all, they don’t mean any harm though.
Do you think this is a fair reason to dump a friend? Have you experienced anything similar?
