Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
See that little annoying chanting banana? Unfortunately, that bears a striking resembalance to alot of the parents I know. I just had to crawl down in the fruit aisle to hide from one of them.

"My son is in 4th grade, and he's reading at a 9th grade level". "My daughter is 18 months old, but she's going to be the next Michelle Kwan".

As a proud parent myself, I understand that it's important to acknowledge your child's accomplishments. Every now and then, when something noteworthy happens, I will share it with family and close friends. That's not what I'm talking about. I mean those parents whose mouths are like a treadmill...who never shut up. They believe that it is their soul purpose in life to inform you of their child's daily accomplishments 24/7. This eventually reaches the point of other parents and adults parting like the red sea when they see "the one who won't stop bragging" approach.

Let's take the rudeness of bragging out of the equation, and consider the other problems with this. Are these parents really doing this for the right reasons? It seems to go beyond supporting your child, into this competitive "keeping up with the Jones's" mode. They want their child to be the best at EVERYTHING...school/grades,sports, ballet, soccer, music, and the list goes on.

These parents seem like they are competing with the children of other parents, who may not have won that 1st place trophy...not exactly the best way to come across.

Now, let's consider what it does to the child. These children have more pressure on them than the CEO of Kraft Mayonaise! Can you imagine constantly hearing "You'll be the youngest lawyer in the country. It's the future president of the United States?" . Are these children ever asked what THEY want to do with their life?

These parents don't do this for the children. They do it for themselves.

I just had to get this off my chest.

Exactly. I can't imagine going through that every day.

There's a lady I work wtih, and she talks so loudly. Noone else can get a word in at all. She thinks she's the only one wtih a child.

Re: Parents Who Brag Too Much!!!
would be interesting to get into such a bragging and tell them "my kid is so good in making a woodhouse and playing with his friends there, also he is better than classmates in swimming/cycling, and never gets sick".

i bet the others would call the CPS on that..

I hate those parents. And those woman who call themselves Tiger Mothers. They aren't sane. They think their kids can compete with all the autistic and asperger children. Maybe they should have had their kids vaccinated.

Just saw the movie, The Odd Life of Timothy Green. reminds me of this post. I thought it was a brilliantly made movie. Parents should watch it. Really moving. Unfortunately, parents like those you mention, are not capable of understanding magical realism. It's too complex for their "Joneses" mentality.

Iknow someone who literally made handwritten lists of all the things their baby did each day, and tried to read it to me. That lasted about 30 seconds. That's how long it took for me to get a phone call and say I had to go.

Do people even consider how rude they look when they do this?!

My neighbor is one. Can't stand that bitch.

After many discussions of her telling me all the bad things my daughter did (texting boys without permission, lying about her age, digital hook-ups with out of state-ers, sexting, etc....nothing to be proud of for sure) I was so glad that her daughter was the first of the two to have a boyfriend and get in trouble.

ROFL because after all those times it was pointed out the two girls were engaging in those poor choice activities together, her daughter 'wouldn't possibly of done it on her own and my daughter must be the bad influence because her daughter WOULDN'T POSSIBLY DO THAT SORT OF THING and it just out of character'.


Real Life Karma. Gotta love it.

It is sad for the kid though. She could have been ok if her mother would of just acknowledge that she had a problem and dealt with it when it originally manifest itself.

There's a little place in Georgia I like to call "alphieville". Aka Alpharetta. ;) Anyhoo, there are many "Jonses" up there and they are all out-sporting, out-beautifying, out-smarting each others chidren. Well, one of the girls got pregnant in college. Oh boy, the mother didn't tell her friends until it was obvious, but by then, her daughter was "engaged". Two years later they are divorced, so imagine even more embarrassment. And the cycle goes on and on.



The grass isn't always greener on the other side as I tell my little ones. To which my 6 year old replied one day, "well mommy, sometimes, just sometimes the grass IS greener on the other side. I'm just saying, sometimes."
OMG!! Mmmkay now, isn't she the cutest, funniest, most precious, and smartest kid EVER?! LOL. ;-P
