Hmm..its hard...I would sit down and chat with them about it tbh and take it from there as it sounds worth doing so.
I have a vague friend whose DS I can't stand...hes a full year younger than DS but the same height and a total vandal...horrible but true, so I've kind of distanced myself...but it hasn't been a problem as only vague friends but in your case, worth chatting about I would think...
I can't stand my best friends son, I've tried.I love my friend but her ds is the rudest, spolit littlt brat that I have ever met. He is a bully and I get palpitations thinking about him.Most children have something endearing about them, but if you can't work it through it's difficult.
I always make excuses to avoid meeting with children now . Could you do that?
We haven't heard from some very good friends after I told them five months ago that we'd booked next years ski trip (without them). We always go togetehr but after last year and the pleasure of their child for the week I can't face it again. I think they're ignoring us now and its very sad.
I have a very old and dear friend whose children are all older than mine. I used to visit her 3 or 4 times a year before I had my children but the last time we went (with my DSs in tow) her children wouldn't let them play in their room and one of them kept complaining about DS1's behaviour It's very difficult to met up without the children as they live too far away
Thank god that has never happened to us with friends! Generally my DCs get on with everyone.
Unfortunately my nephew has taken against my eldest son . DS#1 likes him and my other DCs get on OK with him and his sister. I suspect it's because my lad is physically confident and my nephew isn't. He calls my DS 'stupid'. Which he isn't. Makes life very dificult.
Just found this. I have exactly the same prob as deepinlaundry. My bf's son is the same age as mine, but he is really a vile child. It's a real shame - I have to make excuses, but I think it's prob becoming a bit obvious now. I can hardly tell her the truth though. They're only 6, but ds has begged me not to be forced into this boy's company ever again, so that's that really.
