My dd is 4 yrs old, and her speech is delayed. Its real hard to understand what she is talking about. Anyway, there are 3 kids across the street, and they moved there about 2 weeks or so. Well there is a 6 yr old girl, and a 4 yr old boy, and another 2 yr old boy. Well the kids would tell my daughter to come over and play. But they would play with her for about 10 min, then they would go inside. Well this has happened 5 different times. Well today she went over there, and the 4 yro told me that his sister doesn't like my dd anymore. I know this statement was from a 4 yro, but I also know, and probably all of your ladies that kids repeat what they hear, and there has many times a kid will be listening to mommy and her friend, then and she saying something like, "my mom thinks you are fat" Then of course the embarrassment will sky rocket! lol
She still stayed over there running around haveing a great time. Then 10 or so min later, the little girl would go back inside, and the other kids went with her. So my dd is crying because she wants to still play. My heart aches at that, and then to see the 3 kids outside again, make me so mad!This is pissing me off because they would come over to my house and invite her over, and after she gets there, and a few min pass by, and then they leave and my dd gets so upset and cries, I start crying cause how can I tell a 4 yr old who sits in the window waiting for them to return, sees them and wants to go over. I tell her they have to eat lunch first, or that they have to take a nap, and make up an excuse why she can't go over, then I am the bad mommy.
I am wondering if the fact she can't speak to good yet for the little girl to understand whats she saying and thats why she doesn't like my dd. I do not like her going over there, and a few minutes later, she has to come back home. It hurts me so much to her her get upset and confused at they make her come home when she wants to play.
Am I overreacting? Making a mountain out of a molehill? What should I do??
