Re: Do you hang out with people you dont "love" because your kids like their kids?

No, I tend to filter out parents that bug me.

This is my fear as we enter the school-aged years. I'm not going to be able to filter out all the stupid parents that I don't like.

Yes. There are a few kids my daughter asks to meet up with and I don't enjoy playground coffee talk but I would do it. There is this one girl though who has a mom I dislike and my daughter could ask me 100 times per day and I would never, never call her.

Same here. I don't mind hanging out with a mom I don't feel will become a friend, but unless I had a reason to dislike them I would hang out.

I'll hang out with people who aren't completely my type of friend every once in a while. But if it's someone who really just irritates the crap out of me, or I just don't click with in any way, no, I won't.

No, if I don't like someone I don't hang out with them. Like at a park meet up I don't see a problem going off somewhere to read.

Yup. I have a friend like that; she is mildly annoying, but her kiddo and my kiddo get along well. We usually hang out in a group so it usually isn't a big deal. There's always an excuse it break away (oh, my kiddo needs help climbing x,y,z).

Yes. I have a very laid back personality though, so even people I don't like won't bother me enough to avoid them or keep my kids from playing with kids they like. I only avoid hanging out with families whose children I feel are a bad influence on my kids.

Seriously though, yeah, I could see that happening. I make an effort to meet other moms and befriend them, but there are some times that we are obviously not hitting it off but we suffer through because the littles seem to be interacting well.
Tell me about it, there's this super cute kid that Jammy loves, but his mama! That apple fell far, and then rolled away.
