  • I would talk to the mom to see what the problem is. It could be something trivial or something serious. I'm sure your daughter has other friends so encourage her to play and make plans with them instead.

  • I wouldnt email her. I would ask her face to face. Mabey emailing is more comfortable for you. Dont accuse, just tell her that you notice this is happening and your daughter is noticing it also and its hurting her feelings. You wanted to bring this to her attention as you know that she would never intentionally hurt the feelings of a kid. I would also be active in helping your daughter find other friends. Encourage her to be independent and make different friends. Good Luck Momma!
