Yesterday my BF calls and wants me and my sons (4and2) to come over to play in the sand box with her and her daughter (4) . . while we were there she invites her neighbors kids over which are (9 the girl and 11 the boy) to play with us. No big deal well the playdate starts getting out of hand the girl (9) keeps telling my little boy(4) that she doesnt want to play her him that she only wants to play with my BF's daughter also(4) and that he can't . Well I start getting the feeling that its time to go and so I start gathering my sons things . I tell my oldest its time to go and I start to get them out to the car and the girl says thats good then because we are going back outside to play in the sand and didnt want them to go anyways... My BF hears this and doesnt say anything to the girl so I am outside putting the boys in the van and my Bf says well this is probly for the best ...you know this will happen in school kids not wanting to play with him and I said I know but for now I can get him out of the situation because he doesnt understand someone not wanting to play with his friend but not him he is only 4. So I leave well this is where I don't know what to say or do she calls last night and says are you mad at me and I told her no I was DISSAPPOINTED in how you handled the problem. adn she tells me that the girl did admit to being rude and mean to my son but my BF didnt say sorry for not doing anything at the time it happened.. I dont want to lose me Bf but my kids come first..

I find this to be rude period. In a situation like that though I would have had the older kids playing together and the younger kids playing together. I agree, 4 year olds don't understand that and I am upset because I can only imagine what that would feel like at that age. I can see where you are disappointed but it seems to me like this issue is already resolved. You told her how you feel and she responded. Maybe not the way you wanted, but she did acknowledge that the behavior wasn't okay. I would be on the look out in the future and see how she handles it next time. I would have said something to the girl myself period.
