The 10 Fights You’ll Most Likely Have With Other Moms

women-fighting

When I was a new mom, I found out pretty quickly that there were two things about the experience that I really disliked; other children and their parents. Of course, that all changed as I started to make more and more friends, and realized that the problem wasn’t moms, it was assholes, and just made a point not to make friends with assholes.

Still, even if you aren’t friends with assholes, they will still come and find you, wherever you are. The fact is, you can be the nicest person in the world, but someone will always manage to rub you the wrong way. Of course it’s important to pick your battles, or else you’ll end up a lonely husk of rage, but there are times you don’t want to be spineless either. At some point or another, most people will end up fighting with other moms about the following:

1. Who gets to discipline whose child. I am that annoying woman who walks around at birthday parties, giving people permission to yell at my kid if they need to. I want them to know I don’t feel weird about it. Some people do feel weird about it, and they will tear your fucking throat out if you tell their kid to knock something off.

I once told an older kid to stop pushing toddlers off of the monkey bars when they started to climb up. The mom flipped out on me, all “WHAT DID YOU SAY??” That experience hasn’t soured me, though. I love saying “no” and if your kid’s a dick I will tell them “no”, too.

2. Snacks. Oh my god, snacks. This is a minefield. A delicious, delicious minefield. Listen to me: You are being judged on the snacks you serve your child at the playground. It is either too sugary or too crunchy-granola. Hide it in your purse and let your kid dip their head in there every once in a while instead. Do not ever give other people’s kids snacks unless you are hoping to get into fisticuffs.

3. What counts as age-appropriate. I never knew this was even an issue until I had a playdate at my house when my daughter was four. She was obsessed with SpongeBob SquarePants and was watching the show when the other kid came in. I promptly turned it off, but halfway through the playdate the mother said she “couldn’t just keep my mouth shut anymore!” and actually started to cry because she felt so bad that my daughter was being subjected to SpongeBob.

4. Stroller real estate. Stroller parking, stroller rolling, being in the direct path of someone’s massive Escalade-type stroller. You might be surprised how pissed people get if you are in the way of their stroller, take their parking “spot” or don’t move all of your shit out of the 5-foot horizontal corridor of space they need to maneuver through the library/Starbucks/playground.

5. Sharing. Most parents want their kid to learn how to share. And then your kid meets the kid whose parents hate sharing, and you’re fucked. They’ll be in the sandbox together and you’ll tell your child to share the red bucket and then the dad will say to you, “how would you like it if you had to give all of your things to someone else??” And then suddenly it’s a fight about Obamacare.

6. Something related to school or preschool. If you think playground annoyances end when your kid gets to school or preschool you are wrong. So very, sadly wrong. Welcome to the world of fights about attendance, who is gifted and talented and who should be responsible for volunteering at the berjillion parties your kid’s class will have. Hint: It’s you.

7. Multi-level marketing gigs (Think Pampered Chef and Mary Kay). Obviously.

8. What kind of a job you’re doing (spoiler: not a good one). Back in the day, I would get into fights with older moms about this very thing. There was always something I was doing that wasn’t quite right, probably because I was an idiot, unlike them. You would think that a group of women who face criticism based on their age would not turn around and criticize people based on their age. You are wrong.

9. Carseats. Car seats were not the bastion of bicker-fuel they were when I was a new mom. Now, you will get in fights about everything from head supports to proper Y-strap formation and it will make you wonder if you need a hobby, and also if that hobby should be carseats.

10. “I could NEVER [insert thing you’re doing here]” I could NEVER send my kid to daycare. I could NEVER give my child Lunchables. I would NEVER put SpongeBob on T.V. Honestly, who cares what you would never do? Gratz on never doing it. But why do you care what other people do? Short of hauling off and backhanding a toddler for spilling their own juice, it’s none of your business.

I’ve never had anyone criticize my choices, probably bc I work full time and spend my valuable free time only with people I really know and like and trust around my kids. I make really good safe thought out choices for my kids though and silently worry about others’ kids from time to time. But we don’t fight about it! I just tell my husband and frown.

*shrugs* I couldn’t give a flying spongebob what you think of my parenting choices and unless you are abusing your child or allowing someone else to abuse your child I don’t give a flying spongebob/lunchable/share nazi/stroller valeting/class mom what the heck you are doing. But then again I was always a pretty easy going, accepting sort of person.

I think vaccinations should be on this list.

J.Lee 1 year ago

The cool thing about critical moms is that they were that way before kids and will continue to be that way in the senior community later (watch your lawn gnomes, ladies!)

You can’t always tell when you first meet them but once you do realize that hanging out with this person makes you feel like crap or so angry you want to Hulk-out, you can just smile and be, quite suddenly, really busy. Nothing makes them madder than seeing you happy, unphased and unattainable. Plus, you don’t have to look like a tool raging out on them on the playground. This is sadly, experience talking. Lol

Only 3 occasions that are worth fighting over, the parent/teacher who decides correcting my sons behavior with physical punishment is ok, yes please reprimand my son but don’t put your hands on him, the other two are about car seats, the parent who insists on driving like a reckless asshole with a kid in the car or the parent who doesn’t even have a car seat…other than that if your kid is happy, healthy and fed does it really matter? No it’s unnecessary drama that I don’t have time for :)

I have experienced all of these. The biggest fight I have had with parents and school is the one were my kid deserves an education. I have a developmentally delayed child, and many parents accuse me and my child of dumbing down education. That would be applicable if my kid were mainstreamed. :/.

I have arguments over where my 14 should be at her age . Btw she is freaking one of the most amazing people I ever met so I’m doing something right.

Oddly I had a #9 once. And I couldn’t give a $#¡+ less about car seats. As long as my kid is in one and it’s securely strapped to the car I say I’m doing okay. This other mom THOUGHT we had an expensive car seat and wanted to make a snide comment about it. Jokes on you. I’m too cheap for your criticism. But nice try.

Anna 1 year ago

Great article, sad but true. I always find this soooooo funny when I hear people talk like that. I just stop and stare. I’ve raised a slew of kids, bio, adopted, foster, exchange. 11 so far and honey was asking about another one yesterday. They know where I live and I’m sure they will show up when they need to be here.

The goal isn’t the biggest best buggy or coolest car seat or even perfect “whatever” the newest trend is. The only real goal is they are healthy and well rounded people by time they are 30. If that means the answer is no, and it makes them unhappy for a while, it’s ok. They don’t need $200 shoes, $500 phones and the newest video game to be awesome. But if they happen to have it, that’s ok too.

Our kids need to be responsible, happy, well educated people. All the rest is just window dressing. Breathe ladies, and let your friends and neighbors breathe too. They will all be just fine.

I have only a few moms that I’ve bickered with in real life, and one is my mother in law, so that really doesn’t count. The funny thing is that the mom I’ve fought with the most is someone I actually agree with on most things. We’re both pretty crunchy, pretty careful to give our kids granola-type foods, cloth dipes, etc – but the way she gets in other people’s faces about it and judges them drives ME so crazy, that I usually give my kids candy only when she’s looking, and since I know it pisses her off when anyone drinks soda, I always make sure I have one of those super-sized ones when we go over to their house. It’s a passive-aggressive playground :)

I remember one day at the beach I was eating an ice cream sundae (ice cream, fugde sauce and whipped cream) and gave my one year old a small bite. The lady sitting close to us said to her child (loudly, so we could hear) “I never gave you ice cream when you were that young!” I never felt so judged as a parent! What they couldn’t see was that I was trying to do what I thought was best for my child (,nursing, making homemade baby food. Etc) all they were seeing and judging me on was one bite of food!
As for car seats..I was a certified car seat technician / instructor so I did have some expertise however, I stopped trying to offer advise or help unless asked after one parent reamed me out telling me I was judging her parenting skills.

Thank God I have awesome mom friends. Although I have been unfortunate enough to have asshole mom’s that I have had no choice but to deal with throughout the years. I can’t stand mom’s who think they know it all, who honestly think they are the “all knowing holier than thou” mom. I find that most of those kinds of mom’s are heavily involved in the school system as well. A horrible place for them to be. They think they are doing the world a favor when really they are probably the most hated person in the community though no one will say anything for fear of their “motherly” wrath.

No play with the mentally ill antivax mom untill baby was 2.

If she must eat that and only that, then send it with her. And no, I dont like your dog.

My one and only disagreement with another mom came on the heels of me nursing my 10 month old while tucked away in a corner at the mall. She says,” Oh my god! I can’t believe you are still breast feeding that kid. Don’t you think she’s a little big for that? I asked, “aren’t you a bit nosy for a perfect stranger? Beat it lady!” She nearly ruined my day.

And sharing. I have one rule, we will share the toy with you when we are done playing with it. Kids who are forced to give up every toy they get their hands on grow up to be walked all over and pushed around. It never hurt any kid to wait their turn and be patience. Some adults need to learn too. I used to have a friend who would tell my girls, can my daughter play with that, she really likes that toy and when she is done you can have it back. My response….hell no, she can have it when my kids are done playing with it. Who does that?! What dors that teach kids?! That thwy are priority and that is not always the case.

Rebecca Hensley Shelton 1 year ago

My 2 year old baby girl loves spongebob, as did my older girls, and guess what…they survived, they are now in high school and are very smart, athletic, successful young ladies and they dont have self esteem issues and arent in therapy because of it. Im all for spongebob if the kid likes it.
I think a #10 is the worst. Your kid is no better than my kid is no better than the next kid. Its nice to brag on your kid, everyone likes to hear the cute stories, but when I am telling my cute stories, shut the hell up and stop trying to out do me! I will just get up and walk away and we cannot be friends. Just sayin!

I do not understand how parents get so offended when you discipline their kids. Now I’m not saying hit them or insist on some crazy rule but I am always ok with saying what I think and expect other parents to do the same especially when safety comes into play. I was standing with my 10 month old on the play structure at the top of a slide and a little girl comes over and pushes her. I steadied my daughter and then the little girl tried to grab her eye ball. I reacted instinctively and grabbed her hand and said no we don’t poke eyes. The dad, who was 15 feet away basically ignoring his kids behavior, chose to make a big scene. I told him he was lucky my 3 year old was at the bottom bc if the roles were reversed (me at the bottom and her with her sister) his kid would likely have been pushed down the slide because big sister is very protective of “her” baby.

Totally relate to all of these. I have 4 all at one school (k-8) and I constantly feel like I’m underachiever mom because I’m not doing enough. Yet when I volunteer or try to get involved in something, the queen bees swoop in to take charge and do it all. They don’t want help beyond their little group of other queen bee mom buddies. Seriously annoying. I now keep a low profile with most of the school moms. I sign up for the bare minimum so as not to be viewed as a total slacker then I’m like peace out.

OMG number 4 – stroller real estate! Just last week I get on a local bus, which is a really small one as it always seems to be when there’s a million-and-five people waiting to get on, and park in the wheelchair/pram bay (no one was in a wheelchair). I’d been waiting for the bus for about 15 minutes. This other girl, her mother and her sister get on and have to park their pram in a different part of the bus… and proceed to flash me evil eyes for the 20 minute journey. VERY awkward!

I would not be ok with someone getting on to either of my kids. I am there parent and I can handle it. But also I keep up with my own kids so there hasn’t been an issue like this for me. I also don’t give advice about what others should do unless asked. We all raise our own kids how we feel is best. I will however let a parent know if their kid is getting out of control so they can handle it. To many people worry about things that don’t really matter like what you feed your kid. Smh.

Huh. I was not even aware that Lunchables and Spongebob were bad. I have an almost 4 year old who indulges in both daily. She’s eating meat AND cheese? HALLELUJAH! Big step up from only pasta noodles in my house! She got ten minutes of Spongebob and wasn’t hitting, biting, coloring on the walls with sharpie, or mashing playdoh into the carpet. Win? I THINK SO.

The only “fight” I’ve ever had with a mommy was when I was potty training, and she was wearing Minnie Mouse undies. Another mom (who I don’t even know and was sitting next to me telling me how her 4 year old reads on a 5th grade level while I watched him eating his shirt and threatening all the other kids with a baseball bat) informed her that “if she tinkles on Minnie, it might drown her, and then she’ll never see her again.” WOW. I asked her what the FUCK she was thinking. She told me “we don’t use that kind of language.” I picked up my kid and left.

I’m surprised playground battles weren’t on here. I suppose mine might fall under if you’re allowed to discipline other kids. I had enough with this one kid trying to push my kids off of a 6ft bridge, putting his foot on my 1 yo’s head in an attempt to push him down a slide, and force feeding my son his grape juice, so I got onto him. OMG did that Mom freak out and yet it was her kid misbehaving.

I work retail and I have no problem when kids are leaping off benches or running around like crazy telling them to please stop this isn’t a playground. And progressively saying it louder if needed.

And play groups (that moms set up to entertain themselves with as much as for their kids) it’s about how fancy the snack plate that you bring is, how you and your child are dressed and everything on this list comes up. Them the group splits into two groups of moms who wage war on one another. Pure delicious gossipy madness!
