Okay, I am in a dilemma as to what to do. This is a specific situation, and I need advice from you guys as you aren't involved in this as I am. My daughter had a friend over last weekend (they are 7 yo). The friend's parents were 20 minutes late collecting her so I was a bit peeved anyway. They had been at the pub across the road (literally) and didn't realise what the time was. Whilst I was waiting for them to turn up, their daughter said to me out of the blue (no leading questions asked) "They've probably forgotten about me again. They always do when they are drunk. Mum stopped drinking red wine as it made her puke, soo now she drinks white wine". When they turned up, they were tiddly but not staggeringly drunk. However, they thought being late was a bit of a joke and weren't apologetic at all. (so I've already got my back up!) On the face of it, I'd probably wouldnt think anymore of it. However, her mum has just been banned for 2 years for drink driving a couple of months ago. I also know that a couple of years ago, she was put in police cells overnight for punching her husband repeatedly whilst they were both drunk. I don't socialise with the parents, so I can't comment anymore on it. I also realise that when a young child says something happens "all the time" it may have only happened once. My question is, should I approach someone about my daughter's friend's comments? Is it something I should pass on to their class teacher? Or would this be over-reacting? Should I just brush over the whole event? Is it a school matter at all? Very confused, and hope you can help.
