What is it about that one mum? You know? The one that is always perfect? That pushes their children to be the best in the group, and although they are (and know it), they just looked bored and resort to putting others down in the class? Am I just over reacting? Or do we all know someone like this? A parent has really rubbed me the wrong way from day one when her daughter outed my child (on her first day) in front of the whole class. Saying she was too young and shouldn’t be there. I loved the comment from the coach who shut her down telling her that she had every right to be there and deserved to be. When this happened the mother in the waiting room stopped talking to me, went sour and mumbled about how her daughter was right.

Since then none of the other mums have said boo to me. I tend to not hang around as I have a 10month old and being the later class, he doesn’t sit still and is not the quietest baby around. Today when I sat down he would have a little sook and I would have to stand, but every little noise he made was followed by the certain mum turning around and giving me daggers. What do you say to people like this and how do you handle it? Do you let it slide?

  • This is why I never went to mother’s groups or things like that. I can’t stand it. I can feel how people are feeling towards me and it makes me feel awful so I don’t do it. I’d just try to ignore it and be happy to be there, and proud. Show her she doesn’t bother you. Nothing makes nasty people upset than happy people!

  • Better to ignore it. You can only control how you behave not how she does so just keeping being the beautiful person that you are and don’t get caught up in her ugliness. Good will win in the end so just perservere and don’t give her the satisfaction of letting her get to you!

  • i haven’t experienced this but i would just ignore her and if it gets really uncomfortable, then say something. be very careful though because she will probably try to turn it around on you. I would definately keep my distance from this bully and don’t let her get to you. Don’t stress and just be happy and be happy towards your child. That will definately annoy her more because you are acting like you don’t notice.


    • Good advice. I think your right about her turning the tables if confronted.

  • It doesn’t sound like she’s setting a good example for her daughter… I’ve not yet come across this, I’m glad to say.
