Mum Fuming After Daughter Is Forced To Do Spelling And Maths Test At Sleepover
One mum was left horrified when her daughter was 'forced' by her friend's parent to do a spelling and maths test at a sleepover.
The woman has taken to social media absolutely livid after her seven-year-old daughter came back early from the sleepover and was 'really upset' over the sleepover activities, thinking she was 'stupid'.
Writing on Mumsnet, she explained that her daughter was supposed to be spending two nights at her best friend's house, but called home as she wanted to be picked up early.
She recalled: "When I spoke to her this evening she sounded unhappy and said that she wanted to come home.
"So I went and got her. Best friend's mum was being a bit odd when I got there, listing all the fun things they had done and saying that [dear daughter] was very tired."
The mum continued: "When I got [dear daughter] back into the car she told me that the mum had made them do spelling tests and maths questions and told her that she was stupid when she made mistakes."
She also added that the spelling tests were in the children's second language, which they use a lot at school.
"But whatever the language, [am I being unreasonable] to think that this is an appalling way to treat a visiting child?" questioned the Mumsnet user.
"I've had to fob the mum off before when she has asked about [dear daughter]'s school reports, but this is much, much worse. [Daughter] is really upset and thinks she is stupid and I'm not sure whether to say something?
"I've been slightly wary of this mum for a while as she seems to enter into the kids' friendships in a rather overbearing way, and I could imagine her deliberately trying to make things difficult for [dear daughter] if she took against her."
The post has sparked an influx of angry responses from other parents on Mumsnet, who have all slammed the woman's actions.
"That sounds weird and horrible of the hosting mum. Yes, I'd want to get to the bottom of that and tear strips off her if that's what really went on," fumed one person.
And another advised: "I'd be honest with your [dear daughter] and tell her that the mum is strange and unkind and that she's not suitable to look after her but her friend can still visit you if that's what she wants.
"I would tolerate small talk with the mum if your children are good friends but under no circumstances would she be left in her care again. You have the perfect reason to refuse any future childcare since your [dear daughter] was upset this time."
Somebody else echoed: "That is unbelievable behaviour. She very much deserves to be disturbed and told how out of order it is!"
