BF of almost 20 years (she has had probs over years so have I, we have always helped each other through the rough patches and good) we were close until October. we have out children in the same school Bf was really pleased our dcs were in same class. well I overheard (she was very loud) speaking to class teacher - could teacher keep my dc away from hers!!!! why? so her dc can make other friends. Well I felt this was a little uncalled for didn't say anything as my dc has friends within class who my dc talks about and plays with all the time (never mentions my friends dc BTW). go forward a couple of weeks BF is really being off and distance, and I have noticed other parents in playground are being a bit off (previously courteous hello or a smile) sometimes even feels like they are really giving me dirty looks. my bf is rather friendly with a lot of the other parents (facebook etc) BTW my child has been at this school since nursery bf dc since recently. what would you make of this situation?
if I were giving someone advise I would tell that person that the friendship run its course just ignore the stares from the school ground cliche and the( now former )BF. Hope her new friends were as supportive as you were.
What does anyone else think or am I missing something?

It isn't worth getting offended by it - you'll have to see her twice a day for god knows how many years. Make light of it and carry on.

Some get a little strange when their dc first start school. Petty jealousies, one up man ship and all that. Just ignore it and carry on as if nothing has happened.

My friend's dd started school with my dd. They've just been put in the same form class at a giant secondary school, so together for another five years. It does cause issues. But I think you have to try and rise above it as much as you can, to keep the peace. It affects the dc if you start having feuds.
