Do you like all of your kids friends?

I know this is a tough one for some of us. My kids both have had friends that I didn't care for. I tried to be respectful that they care about the person but it can be hard!

My daughter had a friend that insisted on calling me mommy and said I love you all the time. I barely knew her so it was off putting to me. I was still kind to her but I couldn't help being a bit reserved around her.

My son has a friend that is just obnoxious. I know it's the age, but this little boy insists that he is the best at every single thing they do! And competitive, oh my word. He'll say things when he loses like "Oh I let you win." instead of being nice about it. But still, my son likes him so I just grin and bear it.

What about you ladies? Do your kids have a friend that you just can't bring yourself to like? Or growing up did you have one that you knew your parents didn't care for?

    Right now I do not mind my children's friends. there is one that was questionable because her attitude got really bad ... but my daughter extinguished that friendship on her own...so I was glad to not have to intervene

      The relationship with the "I love you mommy" clingy friend got really sour between her and my daughter very quickly. She was the type that would pout and get mad when my daughter would hang out with other people and that was a total turn off to Mini. I am glad she realized how needy this friend was and started backing away!

      I had friends my mom didn't like. She never outright said it to me, but I knew her well enough that I could tell. Still, she never told me who I could or could not hang out with. I like that she respected me in that aspect.

        My daughter is friends with a little girl who every time she sees me just has to talk to me about how bad her feet smell, now mind you they just got into the 1st grade this school year. It started last year when I went on a fieldtrip to the zoo with my little girls class, her friend was in the group I had. and all she kept saying was how she liked the smell and sometimes it smelled so bad...and now this year every she sees me its the same thing. it is very disgusting. she also has a friend who thinks she is better then any other kids in the class, even makes my little girl feel like crap when my lil girl has a new outfit, I told her that is not a friend, friends do not put other friends down. but she continues to want to be friends with this lil girl.

            iam sorry this was ment for the sleep over post. but in the last line it goes for this also, its all about how you handle the situation. sometimes talking to your child about whats going on dest work, sometimes you have take it straight to the principle or that cilds parent. bullying is a zero tolerance policy in my home and I let them know the same applies when at school. It cant really effect your child in ways you never knew.
