My 9 year old argues with her friends all the time. She'll come home in tears and "shes lost all her friends". But, by the next day everything is fine again. I let most of it go, and try to console her a bit with the old "let it go honey. It'll work itself out in a few days". But, her best friend is getting a little rough...in my opinion. They fight constantly over a third little girl. And, whenever they fight, they try to turn their other friends against each other. But, this other girl is starting to really lie to the other girls about my DD, and today she told her "Youre the fattest person I've ever seen". My dd is the farthest thing from fat...she gets her stringy stick figure from her dad...I'm thankful for that. And this other little girl IS a little heavy for their age group. But, I HATE the "fat" crap. Thats something I have a hard time ignoring. My DH says to let it go, just like everything else this other girl does...but I worry if she keeps it up, things will get worse. And I DONT want my preteen drama queen to have weight issues like I did...or even worse...and get an eating disorder. I know I'm really really jumping the gun on this one, because this is the first time...but like I said...I HATE the fat issue among young girls. Do you think my hubby is right, and I should just ignore it. Or should I say something to my DD, or her friend now before it gets worse??
