Maybe it is just me but I am already experiencing flashbacks to the movie Mean Girls when my daughter comes home and complains about her friends. While it doesn’t happen every day (thank goodness), she is often struggling with how to deal with friends that are “mean” or don’t include her in play. I know it is a rite of passage for every child, but my heart can’t help feel for her.
She has the biggest heart and always includes others so she just has a very hard time understanding when her friends don’t treat her the same way. Of course, she isn’t perfect, but most of the time is very considerate of other’s feelings.
I struggle with what to tell her about it. How much is too much? Do I crush her now to prepare her for middle and high school? I am just having the hardest time with this issue. For those of you that may be experiencing this yourself, please leave some advice in the comments.
