My daughter has one best friend who seems to think my daughter's world should revolve around her. When my daughter talks to other girls and hangs out with them at recess, her "best friend" gets angry at her and says negative things about the other girls. But the "best friend" also does things like taking her lunch to a table where there's only one chair (when she knows my daughter is right behind her, planning to eat lunch with her), thus leaving my daughter out in the cold. I would love for her to hang out with other girls than the "best friend," and I've told her to tell "best friend" not to belittle her other friends. My daughter is a wonderfully nice, rule-following sweetheart and doesn't want to hurt anyone's feelings....but somehow getting her own feelings hurt doesn't count. What to do?
