My daughter is in 6th grade at school and attends a school up to about 7th grade. She loves playing with kids that are older and younger. Lately, shes been having issues at school because she got in trouble for playing with younger kids about 1st grade. The supervisor tells her to go play with kids around her own age and stop hanging around with little girls that are about 5 YO and just started kindergarten. She didn't do anything wrong, she uses appropriate language in front of them, does not boss them, and plays with them in a kind way. However, this situation has happened MANY times already. I had a meeting with the classroom teacher and she said that she will talk to the recess supervisor. The next day, the supervisor talked to my daughter and said that she doesn't want her playing with little kids because it will effect her when she goes to high school, and that all the other schools in our city has rules where the age groups are separated into different areas/playgrounds and that unless she has a sibling or a relative at that age, she has no reason to be hanging around with that certain age goup. So is there any suggestions on how to solve this problem?
