“You’re not coming to my birthday party” and “You’re not my friend” are preschool rants for which I have little tolerance. I listen to the kids’ power play on the playground, but pay more attention to the parent’s response. I, for one, typically blame most things on my own son. He probably did it. I’m not one to rush to his defense or explain that “He must be tired”, “He must be coming down with something” or my favorite- “He must be teething”! Nope. It is probably his fault. The other kid is crying because of something my kid did- I’m quite certain. So if YOUR kid did do something- don’t pass it off as “He’s probably just hungry”- can’t we mothers just call it like it is? “Sorry. My son’s an a-hole”!
