  • Find someone else for your daughter to play with and I bet that friend will coming running back!
    Explain to your daughter what a true friend is. Someone who is there for you, has fun with you and doesn't talk about you to others. Oh, and as for the mom talking about the other girl and her mom to you, I gaurantee it she talks about you to the other mom!
    "Those who Gossip to you, will Gossip about you!" Good luck.
