Dd 10 has a friend she walks to school with and plays with at recess. They also play sports together. I am good friends with her mom. They have known each other for about 6 months. Well this is her second time telling my daughter not to talk to her. She does not want to walk with my dd or play with her during recess since her other friend does not like my dd. I don't like to get involved since kids will be kids and I definitely don't like to talk to the parents unless it's serious. I think this will blow over in a few days. But I don't like dd getting treated like this. Dd is such a sweet girl. What do you guy's do in situations like these?

Yes I agree I don't want to say anything since they are only 10. They will make up. Last year a mom came to me about my dd not wanting to play with her dd. And I was like ok well sorry about that I guess.

My girls are 19 and 22. Seen and heard it all. So glad things are drama free now.

I would tell my daughter to just stop talking to her, if that's what the girl wants. No need to be friends with someone that has a nasty attitude. I wouldn't say anything to the other mom, just deal with things on my end. If she wants to question why the girls aren't hanging out together anymore, she can question it.

I let the kids be kids. My daughter is 10 too, and I don't get involved. I tell her she has to fight her own battles, and that things like this will continue to happen as she gets older. Girls just get meaner and meaner at this age through junior high. I tell her that this won't be the last time something like this happens, and that she needs to find a way to adapt and deal with it. She has to fight her own battles, develop her own self esteem, and figure her own way out of socially awkward situations.

Just let it go.  I find it best to let things be unless asked to help or if there are major safety concerns.  In this case it is just about your daughter being left out because someone does not like her.  It will blow over and either your daughter will get another friend or she will be back in the group and they will find someone else to exclude.
