Hi ponyabc 123
Have you looked at Junior Clubs for girls ? Do the girls like Roller Skating at all?
I see heaps of young teenagers on a friday night at our Roller Ring. New friendships
are formed all the time and very friendly staff if you are by your self with your child.
I did notice children racing each other and then standing having a chat !! They just meet
each other. Maybe go and check it out one weekend !
Ref to the Topic of parents drive through "LOL LOL " You have taken notice too!!!!
I have heard some Mothers saying that they can't even be bother taking to each other
less stress to "stop, open door ,kiss the Child and wave " and they are off ."LOL LOL "
I have thought about the Topic many times and even started to question my social skills!
some Mothers i came across didn't even say hello when spoken to !.So glad you wrote
how hard it is to connect with parents. My thinking to it all is that
1. They are not that busy like they are acting .....They just don't want that interaction
social awareness with another parents/parents .
2. Maybe they feel not like sharing their idea's or thoughts to certain subject.....example
guidelines for T.v programs or eating habits of their child or how stress it is to have a routine
time for homework or bedtime.
3. They have been on the drink through out the day and would refer no one to take notice
at School pick up LOL LOL believe me i have seen a few. I even got invited to a
mid day drink. My reply was sorry i can't. Need to stay focus. Mind you i did go to a catch up
day at the park near us(playtime with Kids) and some of the Mothers where on the "Champs" at 11.00 am
on a 38 C hot day. Every one to themselves !
4. So much Mummy Politics going around ,once bitten twice shy !! There are a few that would like to socialise
but are weary of certain people are concern if they start chatting that someone might take it the wrong one. Has Happen!
So as you can see there are a number of factors( as above ) i mean different area's different states are all not the same.
There is nothing wrong with you or your social skills parent just look at it that sometimes it take a long time
to meet people who (maybe have a few thing in common) and don't let it get you down !.
A great way to meet other parents is to be on the Mothers Club or Parents Group who do BBQ
Fundraising or Fun Days that run in all different times of the Year. Not all parents that do stand
waiting outside the Class room (pick up time, drop off) are active in the Group. Maybe you could
go and introduce yourself at meeting when they have one and donate some free time to help
out in the School. They are always looking for Parents to do photo copying or help with reading and so on.
Thats another idea. ! See how you go.
Good luck . Kind regards Skatergirl08
