A woman has taken to Mumsnet for advice after finding out the mother of her daughter's best friend made her do a series of math and spelling tests while she was at a sleepover.
"My daughter (who is 7) was due to be spending two nights having a sleepover with her best friend, but when I spoke to her this evening she sounded unhappy and said that she wanted to come home." the mum's post began.
S"o I went and got her. Best friend's mum was being a bit odd when I got there, listing all the fun things they had done and saying that my daughter was very tired."
"When I got my daughter back into the car she told me that the mum had made them do spelling tests and maths questions and told her that she was stupid when she made mistakes."
"Am I being unreasonable to think that this is an appalling way to treat a visiting child? I've had to fob the mum off before when she has asked about my daughter's school reports, but this is much, much worse. She is really upset and thinks she is stupid and I'm not sure whether to say something?"
People were not shy about sharing their opinions with the frustrated mother.
"That sounds weird and horrible of the hosting mum. Yes, I’d want to get to the bottom of that and tear strips off her if that’s what really went on. You poor daughter!" wrote one person.
"I wouldn't allow your daughter to go there again and would distance myself from the mother. By all means invite her daughter over to yours for a sleepover but decline any further invites." added another.
How would you deal with this tricky situation?
