WonderfulWednesday: Intimidation in the playground

This week's wonderful Wednesday share is from Mad House Mum and is about when a parent feels uncomfortable at the school gates.

I can soo relate to this post. I have very few people I feel I would talk to when I pick up my kids. It's not that I don't want to speak but I feel awkward. My kids came to the school from out of the catchment area. Many of the other parents, mostly mums, knew each other already. Our eldest in now in year 4 and I still don't know any of them. I'm younger than many of the other parents, and my kids have special educational needs. I'm a bit different and I know it.  I have often had difficulty talking to mums at play groups too.

Well, that all sounds a bit sad, why would this be my wonderful Wednesday share?

It's the honestly that's wonderful. There's no blame in the post. It's no ones fault that mum feels awkward. I'm sure Mad House Mum would prefer she didn't, but it's a wonderful read for those that do. I felt relief. I'm not the only parent that feels the stress and awkwardness as I run towards my kids class.  I'm somehow not ready for the interaction and I'm not sure how people will react to me, I am an unknown. And after years of hanging outside a classroom, I still don't know anyone really.

If you haven't read the post, catch it with Mad House Mum now.
