Do your boys go thru phases where they turn on their female friends & just want guy time? I know kids do & say all kinds of crazy things & go thru different phases, but this latest dilemma w/ the boy next door has my dau's feelings hurt. They are only 6 wks. apart & have grown up together & play together a lot. Out of the blue, this kid starts shunning my dau & saying nasty things to hurt her feelings. (This is the same boy who did a wrestling move & slammed her to the ground a few weeks ago) Quite frankly, the kid can be a real little shit sometimes. We are on good terms w/ his parents & I think I'll talk to his mom today to see what her take is on the whole thing. In the meantime, she's having a friend over who won't be a hurtful little jerk! Ugh!
Have any of you ever dealt w/ something like this? Did you do anything, or did it just blow over?

This reminds me of the little boy in class putting gum in the girls hair that sits in front of him.....because he was in love with her. I think he really likes her a lot & doesn't understand his feelings so they come out as mean & aggressive. I think I'd just keep them apart for a bit. Talk to the Mom & tell her what think so she doesn't take it as you are ignoring her.

Yes, I do believe this is a phase....but what I did is let them work it out themselves, this is also a learning experience for your daughter to distinguish between a real friend and an acquaintance......
