my 12 year old daughter has a friend, Alice, in school as well as in the neighborhood. They've been friends since Kindergarten and are now in 7th grade. They've had a nice friendship until they began to befriend some girls in the neighborhood. The girls in the neighborhood go to different schools. Alice's mom (whom I had befriended) had reservations about the family of the one girl, Emily, and shared her thoughts with me. Well, it turns out that Emily is a very likable girl as is her family. Alice started to become jealous and I could see the same behavior of her very judgemental mother. Alice was beginning to drive a wedge between my daughter and Emily. It got so bad that I no longer speak to Alice's mom and have befriended Em's mom. My daughter now stays away from Emily,I think, to avoid drama at school with most of the girls being friends with Alice. Could this be peer pressure? I don't want to pick her friends!
