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
