My 9 year old daughter has a girl in her class, that since last year she has been playing with her emotions. This girl(i will call her kate) and my daughter were friends at the beginning of the school year last year and when my daughter started to try and meet new people as well Kate told her, if you want to play with other people then you are not my friend anymore you have to play with only me. So pretty much all last year they were not friends; this year came along and they started hanging out again. There is a group of four girls who hang out together Kate, my daughter and two other girls. Kate will say things to my daughter one day to make her feel bad about herself, then the next thing you know she will turn around and be her best friend. My daughter is at the age where her body is starting to change as well as emotions. She is very hurt by this girl actions.
Tell me What is a mother to do?
I have talked with her and told her that if Kate treats her this way she is not a friend to her, I have thought about trying to have a talk with this girl her mom and possibly the principal with my daughter there too, to try and figure out what we can do , what do you all think?
