I realized today, after finding out my daughter is on the receiving end of a "friend's" nasty attitude, that one of the things I strive most for
with my children, is for them to be loving, caring, kind and helpful. The thought of them being the mean kid is horrible to me.
After only 2 days back in school, my daughter (who is 9), tells me her "best friend" is being mean to her. How did my girl handle it? She played
with other kids and by herself. She didn't cry or fuss, and was straight forward in asking what was up, only to be ignored.
I told her to leave the girl alone and continue to broaden her horizon of friends. This is the 3rd year we've had this issue with this particular
girl, so I will try to gently help her away from this "mean girl".
What I really hate is that the girl's parents are wonderful and they adore my baby. I'm pretty sure they love them being so close. But I won't
entertain bossy kids that are mean to their so called friends.
At least my girl has a backbone and doesn't bend over to pushy kids. I'm actually quite proud of her!
As a reflective thought, $#&@ like this is likely part of why I kept to myself a lot through school.
