Paranoid Stigma

Ok so apparently after reading all the comments from my post yesterday - I am paranoid, or at least I shouldn't care.
So after taking the advice of some wonderful ladies here, I went to back to school night and enjoyed it without caring what anyone thought. I didn't allow the other Mom's or teachers to make me feel bad about myself without doing anything. And I had some real tests, there is a particular Mom that gives me the vibe - maybe because of some of the comments she has made - but either way I would have prefered not to run into her. But I did and it was OK - I didn't care - and we all explained pleasantries.
And I even listened to a Mom of steel who announced to the teacher in front of a few other parents that her son was slow. I would never had said such a thing out loud. For the child's sake as other children can be so critical - but she did. Would you have?

  1. Good for you!!! I'm glad you went and didn't give those women a second thought!

    Hmmmm, I don't think I'd make an announcement like that about my child in front of other parents or children. That's something I'd probably talk about with the teacher in private. Kids are so sensitive and it's hard enough these days for them to feel like they're fitting in, kwim? They don't need their moms giving them labels in front of total strangers.


YIPEE! You decided to comment on me!
