I might need a slap for thinking this so thought I would ask your opinions.
My daughter is playground friends with another mum. She has 2 children , they are the ages of my 2 youngest grandsons. The mums chat while waiting for the children and often go to the park afterwards.
The problem has arisen on several occasions where this other mum either on purpose or accidently makes my 5 year old DGS cry.
These are 2 example :- He comes out with 10 stickers on his shirt, he got them for some good written work and learning some difficult words. Obviously , his mum praises him for a good job. The other Mum says' where did you get those? Did you steal them?'
'No' says my grandson ' I earned them for good work'.
The other Mum then goes on and on about it until he bursts into tears because he knows stealing is bad.
Secondly, our DGS is a bit of a car buff and has been since he could talk. He knows all the makes and models and can recognise them even from a side on view. He told the other little boy' I know everything about cars' and the Mum replied' No you don't. No-one knows everything.'
He says that he does and she then launched into a long speech about you don't, no one does, you cant say that etc etc.
Now I know he doesn't know everything and I can see if your son came out with no stickers, seeing a chest full on another child might be mildly annoying if you were that way inclined but I am fed up with her behaviour.
My DGS is not perfect but he's a kind hearted , smart little chap who has a passion for cars.
Its almost as those this mum is in competition with him somehow.
When it happens next time in front of me would it be unreasonable for me to say something? Or am I just being a Nana who doesn't like to see her little chap upset?
