How do I get my 3 yr old out of the stage of telling kids they can't be her friend?

it's not to all her friends just some, like she saw my friend spank her daughter and then told me my friend can't come to her birthday.

  • Ugh, my son went thru something similar to this. If one of his friends mad him made or upset him he would tell them "your not my best friend anymore"! It got so bad that when I would get on to him he would tell it to me.
    I finally had to take things away from him when he would say it. I started taking his hot wheels away, that finally got his attention and we havent had the problem again.
    Good Luck Momma!

  • Our son does it too...he will tell us we are not his best friend. We are starting to take away toys.
