Does your kids school have parent cliques or volunteer nazi's?
Just wondering what the parents are like at your child's elementry school?
My experiance at our public school was their was major mommy cliques. These mom's were very stuck up, gossipped, carpooled, their kids acted just like them with exclusive playdates and such. It reminded me totally of highschool and made me sick. If you weren't apart of the in mommy clique it would definately effect your child's poplularity and such. From being invited to birthday parties to who was put on what extra curricular sports team out of school.
I also witnessed these same mom's were volunteer nazi's. Volunteering is cool I try and do my part but these mom's were like crazy control freaks over it. They were at the school more than they were at home. I'm not sure they even saw their husbands some days. They were very competative about it and would rack up thousands of hours in volunteer time and then glow every spring at the volunteer appreciation breakfast at the end of the year.
I ended up switching my daughter's school in the middle of the year to a private school and I am almost paranoid to get caught up in the middle of it again so I really distance myself from my daughter's new school. I don't want to get all chummy friendly with the mom's I hate cliques.
Anyone else experiance this?
