how do I break this habit of 'if you don't do it you won't be my best friend' stage?

My daughter's friend is doing this constantly to her, and i wanted to know how do I handle it?

  • This is the begining of peer pressure and it only gets worse. Anyone who is a real friend would not want you to do something you don't want to. I had this talk with my dd and now working on my ds. Encourage her to hang out with other friends and this BF will change her tune.

  • by the way, I have to add, my daughter is 3, and her friend is 5. So... if that makes a difference.

  • you need to tell your daughter about peer pressure and about how IMPORTANT it is to be an individual, looks like you might also need to have a talk with miss im the bosses mother as well because i can see that little girl ten years from now blowing lines and giving lap dances.
