Some of my 11 y/o's so-called friends wouldn't let her sit w/ them at the lunch table. A couple of these girls have spent the night at our house numerous times. I know this is a difficult age, but I just don't get it. Luckily my child has plenty of friends to sit with, but I know this hurt her feelings.
What do you think? If you've dealt with this kind of behavior, how did you handle it?

As a kid I have had that happen a time or two. Usually resulting from a falling out between me and another friend. Eventually things get worked out.
For my kids? I know some of the other neighbor friends have excluded them from things, but I don't allow my kids to exclude others. I remind them to think of how they would feel if they were the one excluded and they get it. If they refuse to allow full participation I make them stay home.
