They have never come to me and said we dont like you, so it maybe be a bit of me being overly sensitive but when it comes to the point where they dont even want my child to interact with theres that rediculous to me.

that is ridiculous and sad :(



what are they doing? just telling their children to stay away from yours?



I'm sorry



I'm a little more forward than you may be, but if I were you, I'd just go right up to them and introduce myself. I'd be super nice about it and MAKE them talk to me. It's really hard to be nasty to someone who is making such an attempt to be nice to you.

Maybe her age but I was the youngest un-married mama at my sons christian pre-school and we all got along. They didn't care about my age or marital status (I was 23 though when he started) They were all nice to me as I was to them. Their has to be a reason, maybe words exchanged or (Not being mean at all) possibly the childrens behavior?

It wouldn't make me not like her either. And I would NEVER tell my kids not to play with her kids. But, I probably wouldn't be signing up for playdates either.

Can you switch preschools?
If she doesn't have friends, I'd assume the transition wouldn't be too hard.
Also, I'm sure a lot of moms would feel uncomfortable with an 18 year old driving their kids around - nothing personal against you specifically, just your age.

Some people are very judgemental and its so unfair to both you and your child. Maybe you should switch schools. I wouldnt reveal my age either. People would be less judgemental.

I hope it gets better for ya.



I was young-ish when I had my oldest......I was definitely the youngest mom when he was in preschool. Back in the preschool days, most of the other moms kind of ignored me too. I don't think they meant to be rude or mean but many of them were 5-10 years older than me and I guess they just thought they didn't have much in common with me, other than our children being the same age.



Things have gotten better. I'm still younger than almost all of my son's friend's parents, but I'm in my 30's now so I don't seem quite as young as I did when he was in preschool
