My daughter attends 'virtues' group where children play together, learn about how to behave and more. We always met at the house of one person, he has a nice big house. This week it was agreed that each of the members of the group will take care of all children, today they came to me... I always knew I have worse apartment than majority of them, but the children liked it. Adults however were disappointed in me... I know that...I don't know what to do...
I feel awful. Any advice?

I have to ask - were they really disappointed that your apartment wasn't as nice as some others? How do you know that they were? Or were you so nervous about their reactions that you are reading into things? Or so nervous that you were acting differently and that's what they were reacting to? I've been through this myself. We have a small house & I used to feel really insecure about it. But then I realized what everyone else has been saying to you - if people judge you on what you have, not who you are, you don't want them in your life (or your child's). But really ask yourself how you know they were disappointed.
