My 11 year old daughter has a friend that she has been best friends with since birth. Recently, their friendship has been changing and now they hardly speak to each other. They have always attended different elementary schools, but have spent alot of time together because her mother and I are good friends. We have made playdates and they were in dance together. This year my daughter quit dance because she plays on a travel soccer team. Her friend ice skates and competes. Because of busy schedules and different interests, they do not have much in common anymore. My daughter has developed a new best friend and a whole team of good friends. When she and the old friend get together they do not have much to talk about and the old friend is jealous of the new one! They will be at the same middle school next year and in the band together. How much should her mother and I intervene and try to help them stay friends?
