What do you think Alicia should do? Have you ever been in a similar situation?
Dear MS&J, Love you guys! Here goes: (I won’t give names)
My daughter has a sweet friend who comes over often. This little girl is her favorite/best friend. Ages are 8&9. We like her….BUT, this summer I’ve noticed something that I DON”T LIKE at all. I’ve only watched it happen, and have not YET said anything. This girl, BOSSES my daughter around. A LOT. Whatever they end up doing – it’s what she wants. My daughter just goes along. I fear it’s because she really wants this friend. In their group, she’s kind of the “IT” girl. I DO NOT want her to be bossed around and think this is okay. Before I say something……what are your thoughts or experiences???
Thanks so much!!! Alicia
