Aidan is in K. and was invited to go over to a friend's house after school. His mom lives with her parents and they all smoke and drink let her boy watch a ton of cartoons, he also seems to be behind in school and in play(his mom doesn't do anything at home to further his educational skills).
I agreed to the playdate, but dh and I agreed that I would go over to kind of okay the situation. On the day he was going over, I had something come up and couldn't go. She said they would be fine and she would bring him home in 2 hrs. I let her know that we are strict vegetarians and Aidan has never had meat, she said she would make them Mac and cheese.
When I came home, dh was in the kitchen and I asked him if he asked Aidan what the had for lunch. He said they had french fries and soda from Macdonalds
: . So I asked Aidan if they took it home and had them with lunch, or at least played in the playland. He said that's all they had, and they had to stay outside macdonalds because the mom wanted to smoke.
I am very upset about this, but am not sure if I should be. I know the rule is that if your child gets invited over to a friends house, you invite that child later. But I don't want to.
We put our son in the school he's in because it's small and crunchy. We decided if he didn't get in(it's a public alternative magnet school)we would do homeschool. I want my son to play with the children who enjoy the things we do, and have the same healthy lifestyle. There are many children in his class who come from vegatarian families, work on school stuff at home, do arts and crafts at home, not just sit and watch tv all day. Why does he pick the kid who's family leads a totally opposite lifestyle? And WHY did this mom think that was appropriate for a meal?!
