Moms - would you buy something for your child and not for her friend?

Hi! I'm wondering, if you were with two children - one yours and one her friend - would you buy a treat for one and not the other?









Thanks!

  • No.... if they are out with me and my kids, they get what my kids get. If I can't afford to buy the other child one too, then we pass on what ever it is.

  • No. That seems rather rude. If you only want to buy the one treat, why not wait until your child is alone with you? How would your child feel if it was the other way around?

    If it was something more substantial-- like you're shopping for school clothes, and his/her friend wanted to come along, that's different.

  • No, I always make sure my son's friend(s) can have something also. If I know I can't afford it then we just don't go out.
