How do you politely stop your daughter from being friends with a child you really don't like? Actually the problem is my daughter going to her house. Usually her single mom says she'll be there, then each time she's been there, I find out that for one reason or another, the mom wasn't there/had to leave. And leave the kids with an older brother/sister. Have her over at our house? Good idea, right? Wrong! When she's been here, her mom has left her for hours with an excuse of having to work, etc. Calling at the last minute, asking if she can stay a little more. And since the mom's not around a lot, this child calls mine constantly! She'll sometimes call 4/5 times in a row if we don't answer. And yes, we don't answer on purpose. How do you help a relationship like this dissolve? Or am I being a crazy mother?Answer Question
Does your daughter not want to be friends with her? If so, then call the mom and tell her. If she wants to be friends with this girl, I don't see the problem. She's a single mom, cut her a break. Would you be doing the same thing if you were a single mom? Maybe this girl is lonely because her mom has to work all the time and the only thing you want to do is not answer the phone and bitch about the mom not being there? Wow....have a heart lady! Honestly, if i was the single mom, i wouldn't want my daughter to play with your daughter because she might look down on me because i'm a single mom doing the best I can to raise my family. I wouldn't want her playing with a stuck family.

She said "she really doesn't like the child". That says it all. Just call the mom and tell her that she's an irresponsible parent, her lifestyle doesn't fit your standards and her child is too clingy. That should work.

Okay,how about you trade places with this single mom, there is all types of being racist, sound like this woman isn't fortunate like you to be home all day, she has to work,I'm quite sure there is times she has to work over-time,I would feel so good for another mom to trust me to watch their child. You know, we have to be very sure of the things we tell our kids, I can hear you now,Mommy don't want you to play with your friend,she come over too much,your loving DD will repeat your words to that child,and you will go down in history as a meany to kids.
