Srama, Thank you for your feedback. I hope like you and butterflyice mentioned, things would ease out as school. As a full time working mom, i do not get to volunteer much at school, but never miss any school parties or any interaction with the teachers and make sure i attend all of them. I have even asked the teachers for volunteering help that i can offer from home, like cutting or preparing materials and stuff which i can do remotely in my spare time. During those times, i have met with other parents, who are there, but due to lack of time, not able to arrange play dates or anything with the other kids. Not sure, if this is how to build a rapport with them. Also, do they keep shuffling kids during every school year or do they stick with the same friends until the end of the elemenatary school? Can we ask for a change of class if needed? Also, am still trying to see if my daughter would get Indian friends, including her there is 3 indian kids in the class. It is because, since everything is totally different between the way we raise kids, and the culture, food we eat, am afraid to even ask for a play date with non-indian friends, as how they would even take it. Once an American neighbour when offered some sweets and snacks for Diwali, he refused saying that, i don't like the way you guys eat, with hands. I was taken back and thought in my mind,we are more hygienic than them, prepare fresh meals after taking bath and have fresh meals both morning and in the evening and do not eat frozen foods pre packaged foods. All this is stopping me, on approaching other non-indian parents for play dates, wondering how they would feel about us.
