The 11 types of mum you get in the school WhatsApp group & why ones who make side groups are the worst | The Sun
KIDS are back to school for the new term and with this comes the return of the dreaded class WhatsApp group for parents.
And one person who knows this only too well is parent-of-two Amy-Jo Simpson, 44, from Essex, who uploaded a comical video on the different mums she has witnessed typing away.
Speaking to Fabulous, fitness trainer Amy-Jo revealed that she had actually refused to join her child’s latest school WhatsApp group after having bad experiences in the past.
She revealed: “Having spent over 15 years stood at the school gate, I’ve had time to observe and witness some weird and wonderful things as a mum of two.
“But just when you think the school gate is enough, along comes the WhatsApp group.”
And although Amy-Jo stayed firm this time round, her friend wasn’t so strong.

Amy-Jo, who is mum to Meg, 19, and Will, 11, and married to fireman husband Andy, 46, revealed: “When my best friend and I discussed joining it (obviously you ALWAYS discuss such important things first) we both agreed no.
“The next day my friend buckled and joined it. Our friendship survived but I still didn’t give in to peer pressure. She does always inform me though on what I’ve missed.”
