Twin day at school and DDs best friend decided she likes another girl as her best friend

I feel bad for my daughter and I know there is nothing for me to do regarding their friendship but Twin Day is coming up at school and not sure what she should do.  I had already bought an extra shirt for her original best friend but now she does not want to be twins with my daughter so maybe I should let the neighbor girl be her twin if she wants.  I already bought a twin shirt so that two of them could match.  What do you think?  Should I have my DD ask her if she wants to be twins next week on Twin Day?  DD is 2nd grade and neighbor is 3rd grade and they play together almost every day after school.

That sucks. For sure tell your daughter to ask another friend or even two.

Let DD decide. It sucks her friend didn't wanna do it with her, but I'm sure she has a lot of other friends she could ask.

Yes, kids are fickle, however she is crushed but will not show it.  When her former best friend came to say hi, she talked about how much fun she had with her new friend and that they had the greatest weekend.  Then that they would be twins for twin day.  DD recovered quickly and said what a great time with her neighbor friend this weekend too.

I've always thought that 'twin day' was stupid. I feel bad for those kids who couldn't participate because no one asked them to. Girls, mostly. Seemed the boys in the school weren't very interested.

 Twin day? Seems like a bad idea because it would single out the kids with no friends, making things even worse.

Ask your DD what SHE wants.  It is a hard lesson to learn growing up, but she's gotta learn it eventually.  If she chooses not to partake in Twin Day, that's her choice.  If she wants to ask someone else, that's her choice.  You just need to be supportive.

That said, Twin Day?  What a recipe for disaster!  I can't think of a worse thing for a school to do to kids!  I bet things like this happen EVERY YEAR and create conflicts!  Why not a different themed day, like Cartoon Day or Silly Pajama Day?

I would encourage that friendship with they neighbor as well as with her other friend. That sucks for your DD.
