I've learned a lot now that I'm on my 4th child. I've learned to not do lazy parenting (instead of yelling and MAYBE following through, I'll get up and get to my child's level). You don't tell others how to parent their children, but you can give friendly advice.
I don't have many friends and as much as this woman is socially challenged, she's also learning how to find her true parenting skills...or I HOPE she's trying to learn. I got invited to something and instead of it always being me me me...I decided to invite her along. She won't have a sitter...and I'm not about to drop her two tots onto my hubby just to go to this thing (he'll have our 4 kids already). She yells at her kids...instead of getting up and doing it quietly...she'll make a scene. Her 3 yr old is a hellion most days (even in my care she won't listen). And I can just picture her ignoring her child at this thing. Kid too loud, running around annoying other people...and I feel it might just fall on my shoulders. Not to care what others think, but I'm going to this thing to try and make NEW friends or MORE friends (than just her) and worried it might ruin my chances of separating from her and the stress her kid adds.
Is it better to not risk it and just bail on the friend to this thing? I've parented her child in front of her and she now thinks it's okay to yell at my kids if she feels they're doing something slightly wrong. Lead by example...but I also don't want people seeing me trying to settle down her child and have them think she's my child that I can't discipline and lose any chance of friends I may get. With this situation...WOULD YA'LL SEE ME IN A NEGATIVE LIGHT IF YOU WERE TO SEE ME BRING THIS WOMAN AND HER KIDS TO A FUNCTION? Sad to think that the only way out is to move off the island to make new friends lol.
