DD is 4 and in Pre-K. There is one littel girl that she always says is her friend but she also says that this girl is mean to her. She has another friend too so its sometimes the 3 of them playing together. When dd tries to play with them the one little girl always tells her that she is not their friend and cannot play with them. The other little girl loves dd and still listens more to the "mean" one and ignores dd. My MIL drove my dds school and saw her sitting alone in the playground while the other kids were playing. DD denied it so maybe she was sitting down takin a breather? It kills me as her mother to know this. She doesnt bring this up untill I ask how her day was. Its not like she comes home crying. Am I overreacting? Is this normal behavior for that age? Should I talk to her teacher or just shoot her an email? TIA
PS I just askd her now who are friends are she named every kid other than the two I mentioned. When I mentioned the nice girls name she said " Not she's her(the "mean" one) friend. They dont like me" This breaks my heart!

Yup, kids are mean. But it would be the teacher's job to stop this bully attitude. I would talk to the teacher because it can go further later. When I worked at preschool we usually were really aware of bullying like this. Kids do this. One day one friend, the other day the other. But if someone doesn't let the other play with something or someone, it is seriously unprofessional from the teacher to let them. Talk to the teacher just let her know. I am sorry your child has to go through on this:( Hugs.
