So, I have a friend who I met about 9 months ago at a kid's event in our city. She has 2 daughters, as do I.
At first, I thought her girls were just very energetic. I really hate to sound judgemental, but her girls are awful. They shout at my friend until she answers them, even if she and I are trying to talk, they "playfully" hit her to get her attention, then laugh about it if she tries to correct them. They hit each other all the time, and the older one hoards all of her toys when my daughter goes over to play. She literally takes everything out of reach and hides it in her room because she refuses to share. They recently came to my house for dinner, and we have a rule at my house that you sit at the table while you eat your food; they were running around my house with food like they always do and it drives me crazy. I don't like the way my daughter behaves around them and for the time period right after.
I don't want to risk losing my friendship with their mom, but I really don't feel I can have my daughter around that. My friend just lets this stuff slide, too, and acts like it's not happening. She never stands up to them.
I really need some advice. I don't just want to come out and say, "Hey, your kids are little terrorists and I don't want to see them anymore", but I can't handle this anymore. I am sooo stressed after being around them. Any thoughts? Sorry if I sound mean, that's not my intent.
