When the weather is nice we spend a lot of time at the playground. There is always a ton of other kids there. Yesterday we were there and the boy my dd considers her boyfriend was there as well.and ordinarily he's really into sports so when a group of kids started a dodgeball game my dd wanred to play. He was not thrilled and got upset when my dd decided she was gonna play. His reason ws that in his head some of the other boys were crushig on her. She thought it was rediculous. What advice would you give her? I told her to tell him to get over it if he plans on spending time with her.

 That's what I would have told her.  Don't let some boy make her give up what she wants to do.

She needs to do what she wants. No guy should ever tell her what to do.

Yep, he needs to get over it, but remember the age group you are dealing with. They aren't always the most logical.

I always told my kids that other peoples insecurities are not their burden to carry. So if he is jealous of other people, then it is his jealousy and not your DD's. It's not her job to fix it.

 Tell her to always be herself and to never let anyone change her
