Needing some input Mama's!
My 13 year old daughter had a breakdown with her BFF over a boy, so I think. These two girls have been friends for 10 years and as you might imagine, this young lady is a significant part of our lives as well.
I lover her just like she is my own.
My oldest son told me tonight that the girls are not on speaking terms anymore. I had a suspicion that something was up even though she did not initially share this information.
I opened the topic tonight with her. We both cried. She is mortified and misses her. I lost BFF's over stupid stuff and even once a boy. It hurts no matter what age you are.
She says it is one thing why they are not talking. A boy whom her BFF likes and suspects my daughter likes as well. Yet, my son says it is another reason that he over heard, so I am not totally sure what is going on. BUT...I am tempted to call the friends mom so we can chat about it and see if we can do anything to help.
I suggested to my daughter to write a letter to her sharing her feelings with the BFF. BUT I am so worried that the friend will share it out loud and cause much more unnecessary grief. I don't think she would but geesh...I am not so sure. I might just be paranoid. I also assured her that I will do whatever she wants in any way that I can help her.
She is so, so sad. It breaks my heart.
Do I sit back and let them figure it out or do I...get involved where I might not be needed? Have you had any similar experiences?
Thank you so, so much!
