I love hanging out with my friend N. We have a great time together. My husband and her husband even get along great. But I don't like her kid.
He’s 6 and my son is 3. He bullies him and is a horrible influence. He pushes him, grabs him, tries to bite him and bosses him around. He says things like “I don’t like you” and then my son repeats it or my son will tell me “A told me I couldn’t do/say/etc that.” and then he will do/not do it because her son told him to. My son looks up to this kid. I will tell my son not to do something and then this kid will do it so he does it of course.
Also, my friend lets her son watch anything and everything. They’ve let the kid watch Dexter (and worse) and play Nazi Zombies. This equals to play being killing, cutting, monsters, zombies, stabbing, punching, kicking. I don’t let my son watch this sort of thing and don’t want his play to be like that. What happened to driving cars and pretending to be a police man? Her son will purposely be mean and I just don't know if my friend doesn't notice or turns a blind eye or she thinks its okay because I'm always the one having to say something
I feel like if really sit down and say anything to her that she will be like "well your kid's not perfect either." Which I know he's not and he does throw tantrums but not like this. I also think her son is influencing some of my son's bad behavior. I know my friend and if I say anything to her it will end the relationship. I'm really not comfortable with my son being around her son anymore but I'd still like to spend time with her. Please help!
