not even 2 hours
go by and I have my LL coming in the house with tears steaming down her face because her "best friend" told her they weren't "best friends" anymore. What to do , what to do? I sat with her and tried to get the whole story as to why these words were said because I'm not going to assume LL was an angel in the situation and nothing could be her fault. Girls can just be mean and take things so personally. I asked her if she thinks she's only allowed 1 "best friend"? She thought yes, I told her no and that we just need to be friends with every one and that our "best friends" should be the most important people in the world...our family. I don't know maybe that's too much for a almost 8 year old to understand but I really don't want my girls thinking they have to have a "best friend" outside our family but to just be a friend and treat everyone with kindness. Is that so much too ask? She's now gone back over the the "best friends" house to apologize...I asked for what? did you say or do something you need to apologise for? She said no but that she just wants to. What do I do with that? First day back in school and my biggest worry has begun. Friends?Girls?Mean?Why?
