My 3.6 year-old daughter and her bff have been so close for about a year -- recently though, they have started fussing a lot with each other (As I know children will do). My daughter hasn't even wanted to go to preschool lately because of this! I have stayed objective and just encouraged my child to play nice and make other friends as well. Well, they had a playdate (at her house) this morning -- and when I picked her up, the other parents said the girls were both being crabby and when the mother asked what was wrong -- my child said, "I just don't want to be her friend anymore." Of course the other little girl burst into tears -- So I tried talking about it on the way home (and explained why we shouldn't hurt another's feelings on purpose), but all my child will say is, "Well, sometimes, I just don't want to be her friend." UGH! Will they grow out of this? Is there something else I should say?
