NBC Parenthood's Adult Playdates

End Child's Friendship If Parent Hit on You or Your Partner?

Playdates aren't just for the kids. On last night's Parenthood, Crosby takes Jabbar to his friend's house, but the boy's mom wants to hook up with the single dad more than hang out. During last week's episode, Joel tells Julia that Sydney's best friend's mom tried to kiss him. In both cases, friendships between children are involved so the parents are put in an odd position. If you ended up in this type of a situation, how would you react?

i wouldn't actively pull the kid out of the friendship but i would very much limit my interaction with the parents and attempt as much as possible to direct my child to other friends with normal parents...and if it were me who got hit on, i'd also bring the child's father around more and make a big point of the fact that i'm not interested and he will kick your a** if you try again

Agreed, MissSushi. I trust my partner completely and while this person would definitely not become (or stay) a friend of mine I would not make my kid lose a friend over it. That little kid had nothing to do with their parents sleazy behaviour.

um.. no.. if the kids are good friends, why do you feel its okay to just cut ties because the parent is a sleaze? Its easy enough to shift the focus to more non parent playdates at your house, not letting your child alone at their house, no situations alone with said parent, etc. You're the adult here, your child and their friend shouldn't suffer.
