  • Just tell your daughter she can be friends with whom ever she wants. If the other girl wants to be her friend as well then she will learn to play nicely with your daughter and her other friends. You could also tell the other girl that everyone is allowed to play and that no one has to be left out and that there is enough room for them all to be friends. Let them all know you must play nicely or they can't play at all. Speak with the other girls mother as well and if she can't see what she is doing then let the kids all play and if her daughter is being mean about your daughter having other friends then let her know she either needs to stop or go home.
