Here's a scenario conversation between my 3 yr old and new acquaintance: "I made you a pretend birthday cake" My dd:"I don't want it!" "It's got pink candles." My DD: "I don't like pink candles. I told you I want brown candles." (she didn't)
You are standing right there hearing the whole thing. Do you get involved? What do you say? I sort of meekly told her she was being impolite as another parent looked me over and I shuttered inside thinking I didn't handle it well at all. I don't want to helicopter but I thought her behavior was antisocial and this is very common behavior for her.
I think you did great. You corrected her. If she continues to be impolite you may need to take it up a notch until she learns that this kind of behavior isn't excepted.
