My ds11 just got invited to his first sleepover. It's not till the end of next month, but I'm pretty much going to have to say no and that hurts. I hate to hurt his feelings and the kid that invited him, but I don't know the adults and there's a pandemic (which we've so far avoided, fingers crossed). But with homeschooling him, I'm equally afraid he won't get another invite. I'm so conflicted. I know it doesn't make or break his life, but... this year has sucked so hard and to start next year off the same just seems to be so unfair.

I am afraid to be around my tween nieces. Only because I still haven't fully recovered from an eating disorder and I am actually smaller than they are. I am not healthy at the weight I'm at now and I don't want to cause them any worries about their bodies. I had a bulimic aunt when I was that age and my grandma always compared us and I know it helped me develop my own eating disorder. I'm using this as the main reason I need to recover because this is making me so horribly sad.

In response to a confession. I'm the OP of the Xbox confession, and I wish something like that would happen to my son. I was always the odd kid out, and am still the odd adult out. I was homeschooled and an outcast growing up, so my mom sent me to school in 7th grade where I was assaulted by a boy and he dislocated my jaw. The school didn't punish him because he "had a rough home life". I still have mental and physical issues from that year. I went back to homeschooling after that. I never ever thought one of my kids would be a bully and haven't the slightest idea how to get it across to him that that type of behavior is unacceptable. I honestly feel like he would benefit from being publicly called out.

In response to a confession. My son was horrible to another boy in middle school, and they had been friends a long time. Well, said kid and his parents showed up at my house and the parents asked if they could talk to DS. It was the most thorough shaming I've ever seen in my life. I had no clue this was going on at school, so I just watched and listened. I swear, DS was physically shrinking during this talking-to. And he deserved it. He admitted to being cruel and hurtful, admitted that the kid had been a good friend to him since he moved here, apologized and shook the kid's hand in the end. Even today, he'll tell you it was one of the most important lessons he ever learned. He's grown now with a family of his own.

I just overheard my ds10 and his friend on Xbox, they kicked off another friend because they don't like him. They just said "hey, we don't like you stop coming in our party." This kid is lonely and just wants friends, and I'm so embarrassed and hurt that my son would be like that. I thought I had taught him better than that.

I was grocery shopping and saw a boy (probably 8yo?) with his mom and she asked him if he wanted some chicken nuggets and he said "No, those will cost you too much money. I don't need them". I was like, super amazed that a kid that young would care about something like that. The mom quickly said "No it's okay; it's food so we can buy it". I wonder if she lost her job or something recently...I remember as a kid being pretty aware of money when my dad had gotten laid off.

In response to a confession. I get that. I like my kids, but they're definitely more fun once they're older. I being the resident babysitter just bc I'm the only one with older kids. I can't stand other people's kids. Lol.

I don't think things little kids say are cute. Most of the stuff they say is either dumb to me or just annoying. It makes it hard for me to interact with my nieces and nephews because I just get bored and annoyed with them. My older nephews and nieces are 100% easier for me to interact with. I've always found kids annoying-even when I was a kid myself. I guess it's a big part of why I don't have them myself. Just don't expect me to laugh and say "aww!" when you tell me some stupid thing your toddler said.

After nearly 6 months of isolation. DS started hanging out with a select group of friends. They all work together. All their parents work from home now, and they only hang out at one kid's house, and in the basement. His dad, my husband and I are all okay with this, but DS' stepmom is FURIOUS. Screaming that if DS brings COVID into their house, she'll be pissed. Meanwhile...she's going out to eat all the time with her friends, goes shopping at the mall, and babysits the neighbor's kids in their house. The mom is a NURSE. Who's putting themselves more at risk? Talk about hypocritical!
