My daughter had a friend over to play yesterday and to be honest, I don't really like the kid. They are in first grade, so she is just a little girl, and I feel like a jerk for not being one of those loving moms who treats all the kids like they are her own.
I thought she was bossy, abrasive, and had bad manners. Of course she is ultimately just a 7 year old, no doubt I am over reacting.
Are you one of those moms that all the kids love, and you love them all, or are you easily irritated by kids? Do you tell your kid who they should be friends with, or criticize their friends? How do you handle kids you don't like? It is obviously more important as they get older and do more stuff with friends outside the home.
Feel free to expound on any issue related to this. This was only the second friend we have had visit. I liked the first girl better better but unfortunately my daughter is bffs with the second girl.
