I will try to make this story short but I need some advice. My daughter was best friends with a girl from school for over a year. They did everything together. Her friend came to our house and she just fit right in with our family and our daughter would go to her house and they treated her just like family. Suddenly, there was some concerned phone calls from the girls' mom saying that my daughter was bullying her, such as saying she wouldn't be her friend if she didn't do what she wanted. So I had a long talk with my daughter about how we can't control other people and that we shouldn't even try to. After all, if we are forceing someone to be our friend, then do we really have one? Anyway, both girls liked to sing and were really good at it so they started going to singing competitions. When this started, I noticed mom of the other girl pulling her away from my daughter. Then after a while, my daughter called her friend a bad name in a text message. She got into big time trouble and just got her texting privelages back a month ago, after not having them for almost a year!! Her and her friend were fine though, even after the texting incident and then all of a sudden, the friend texts me saying that she can't be friends with only one person and that she has other friends. I just told her that I hoped they worked it out and had another talk with my daughter. At this point, the mom of the friend won't discuss it with me. Now almost a year has gone by and the friend has cut herself out of my daughter's life completely. It hurts me because I see my daughter hurting. She seems to have no friends and I talk to her A LOT about the importance of giving people space and respecting others. So my question (sorry for the long intro) is: Should I attempt to make contact with the mom again and try to work this out since her and I are sort of friends too? I guess the momma bear in me is just upset that someone is blocking my daughter out and won't explain why or give another chance or anything. Help me out here ladies, am I crazy?
