There's like 3 families total in our lives I trust alone with my kids. Call it bad experiences growing up, paranoia, whatever but hmmm no. Sigh. How do I politely tell this mom all that without looking like a crazy?
BFF was easy- we both had 5 kids and we just played together lol. Hate that she moved and I know I need to let my kids make new friends but its REALLY hard with the communication barrier.
I'm the same... I can't imagine just leaving any of my kids with someone that I don't know... Heck my kids have never even been with a sitter (my oldest is 5) b/c I don't trust anyone. I'd suggest a get together somewhere like the park, chuck e cheese, a kids museum... Just so I could be there too. Paranoid? Maybe... But I'd definitely feel better...
