Five moms in my area (including me) have been getting together with our children for outings or playing at one of our homes. One of the toddlers is 2 years old. She's not talking at all and when she does talk it's just like loud groaning and grunting. She vomits a lot and whenever we go out she covers her ears and screams and cries. I think she may have a developmental issue but the mom hasn't mentioned anything. This is the issue...the other moms don't want include her in our outings anymore. Our last outing was at the zoo. She went ballistic when we went into the monkey house, bird house and the chimp house. She covered her ears and screamed and screamed. The other parents don't want to include her because they are afraid their kids will start to act like this little girl. Truthfully, she doesn't seem to enjoy the outings but there haven't been that many. I think with time she'll get comfortable with us all. The issue is- the other parents are firm in not wanting to invite her and her mom to anymore outings. I don't agree but I'm out numbered here. DD enjoys the playgroups as do I but I also don't feel comfortable leaving out a mom whose daughter may have a learning or developmental issue. Any advice?
