Being random- could you invite her to your house for a lesson? I mean, if you like this person enough to have her in your home, incase she said yes. Offer to let her come over and help with a special project of some kind that it would be nice to have some help with- like gardening with the kids, and it might let her get it out of her system.
If you really don't like her enough to have her around your kids even with you present, don't feel so bad if you need to tell her to back off. Or, even more nicely, you can tell her that all your lessons are going great right now, but you appreciate knowing she's there to help if you ever need her.
ok, so i have this neighbor who i have known for a little over a year, she is a very nice woman, but believe me you she has her issue, she is a drinker, well that is none of my business, she is very nice to us and very sweet to my kids when she sees them, she even gave my oldest a birthday card, i listen to her troubles with her daughter (she seems to always call me when she is drinking) but i really dont offer much advice, i figure she just needs an ear, well she calls me the other day and starts on about her daughter and then shifts gears to my daughter, she states how she has a degree in teaching and thinks my dd would benifit by coming over to her house each morning for her lessons,(first off i would never send my dd over anyones house for anything without me and especially not her house with the drinking issue goodness no)
i explain to her we are doing great and no thank you but then she( neighbor) gets kinda pushy and trys to express how this is something she thinks my dd needs, well again i say no thank you, we homeschool at home just fine, and i make a joke saying if i sent her to your house it wouldnt be homeschooling it would be neighbor schooling... lol
i think she got the point but maybe not, i am nervous now that this once friendly neighbor is going to over step her bounderies and start to become a issue, like i have read about with others, she thinks my dd needs a certified teacher and that i am bot qualified to teach her, that was pretty much the conversation,,, gheez, i hate to have to tell this lady off and end the neighborly friendship, how do you think i should handle this if she brings up that she wants me to send my dd to her house for lessons. No means No get a clue lady!
(why cant people just mind their own business and live their own life)
