Aibu to be upset at the way another mum treated me at school pick , it probably sounds daft but I tried to talk to one of the mums at the school she just grunted yes or no answers to me then turned her back on me to talk to the other mums , I've tried a few times to chat to mums at the school and I nearly always get ignored I should be used to it but this one time really upset me i had tears in my eyes walking home , this same parent then went on to not invite my son to her sons party but invited everyone else in the class , I feel like we've been snubbed by all the mums and not sure why

flowers From what I hear and read over here, you are not alone OP. Their loss. Someone with kids/more experience will be along to give you useful advice. Hang in there.

I think you would get more responses if your thread title said more about what it is about.

I wouldn't worry about one or two mums being rude - they're immature types who haven't grown up and got over the "mean girls" thing they probably went in for when they were at school. You'll probably find one or two who are actually worth talking to and you really won't care what the rest are doing.

Ahh don't let it upset you. I actually hate the school run. I leave it until the very last minute so I don't have to be stood on the playground. I love in a small village and its very clicky. I speak to very few as I've been snubbed by a few parents. The way I see it your better off. They don't know any of your business and therefore you are never part of their daily gossip circle. The playground of parents is worse than the playground of children I have found. Keep smiling. Xx

Fuck them! Tbh half of them act like its their life, If someone wants to be a petty twat then it really is their problem, people probably think I'm a miserable fucker but I go to pick my kids up not gossip there is more to life.

Sometimes the key to working out why some parents act the way they do towards you is in the relationship their child has with yours.

He seems really popular all the children shout to him when we see them outside of school and he's a really happy child

Hmm.. so this mum could be feeling jealous of your son's popularity? It's certainly one possibility to consider. That's not to say there's anything you can do about it or that it'll necessarily make you feel better though, but sometimes getting your head round the cause can help.

I don't think it's that deep! She just prefers the gossips end of.

Stay well away from the school Mums clique is my advice. Even if you get in the coven, it is never ending drama and bitchiness.

Luckily my older two are in secondary now but my youngest starts primary next year so I have to do it all over again.
