How to handle "perfect moms"
Hi all! I'm just wondering if any other ladies out there would like to share their suggestions on dealing with other mom's who look down on you (maybe not what they say, but how they act or don't act) because of your children's behaviors or actions.
Let me explain a little of my dilemna....
My oldest son is ADD and on the high end of the Autism spectrum. He is very bright, but also has those oppositional behaviors which can be tough to deal with. My youngest son has some PDD tendiencies as well and probably ADD, but not diagnosed. So my boys tend to pick at each other and tend to be quite oppostional.
My husband and I do correct our children and are getting help to deal with their behaviors. Anyways there are other mom's that I interact with ... bus stop, church, etc. that I feel judge me as a mom by my boy's behavior. Sometimes they don't talk to me, and sometimes I get looks, etc. I am so tired of these "perfect" moms and am wondering what you gals suggest to do.
I don't think it is any of their business my sons' diagnoses and don't want to share that with them. How do you guys respond or not respond to mom's like this and how do you pick yourselves up when these mom's act this way and you are feeling like crap? (and oh,telling them off wouldn't be good, because they are mom's I have to interact with)
Hoping for some suggestions! Thanks.
