  • I say your friend is no longer your friend. Seems she has become chummy with the neighbor you don't get along with, to the point where you were excluded from a party that you had planned together. Birds of a feather, I always say!

    Girls of ALL ages can be very catty and competitive with one another...just look at this site! LOL This is just the first in a LONG line of disappointments your daughter is going to have to deal with. Better that she learns that not everyone is going to like her or be her friend even if she is the sweetest, kindest, prettiest, smartest, most talented person on the planet! She should just get involved with groups/sports with likeminded individuals--that's where she and YOU will make better friends! :o)

    This is absolutely the best advice anyone can give you on this matter. You need to put it out of your mind and move on. Don't dwell on it because you will only upset your dd and make her feel even worse for not being invited. Kids at this age, especially girls, are so vulnerable to rejection. Instead of trying to force a friendship with a girl or girls that don't want to hang with your dd, let her find her own group. Every kid gravitates to other kids they have things in common with. You dd may not end up 'one of the popular girls' but what is more important is that she makes good friends with kids she can trust.

  • Yea why are women so petty that it comes to them not letting their children have a good time and make friends just because they are not getting along at the time. STOP ACTING LIKE 2 YEAR OLD BRATS!
