Do any of you have

a close friend (or even your best friend) that constantly ''talks up'' their child? Even when it is blatantly clear to everyone else around that is not the case?

How do you handle it?

**And I realize that we ALL brag about our kids. I mean EVERYTHING said the mother thinks should be in the world record books**

  • Yes I have a friend, well person, I talk to. I don't think she is a friend because she brings down my daughter "alot" I know my daughter is not perfect but this person does not need to bring down my own flesh & blood. My daughter means the "WORLD" to me!!!!
    I don't care for people who up scale which they don't actually have. What they are trying to do is make their life shine better then yours. Why do they do that? They want to out prove them-self. Maybe low self esteem on thier part. I honestly don't know But I hardly talk to this friend because she brings down my daughter.
