Meddling in your kid's frienships !?!?!? *EDITED WITH CONCLUSION*
DD and her best friend Maggie met last summer, since then, they've been like 2 peas in a pod. They go to the same school, we live just about 1 mile apart, they got together several times a week, at some point almost daily, school night or not, Maggie and DD were together ; practically inseparable.
I know Maggie is a moody little girl, she is medicated for school (some concentration issue) she is a quiet child who is the baby of the family and very much coddled by her mother. I know my daughter is bossy, she is very outgoing/extraverted, she is an only child so used to be "king of the hill".
Came Christmas break my daughter called Maggie almost daily, but she never wanted to get together. I spoke to the mom after a couple weeks and she told me that her daughter just spent the holidays alone, watching TV 10 hours a day, she was just in one of her moods. Then, since the beggining of 2014 the relationship is almost nil. Maggie's mom called me a few weeks back and wanted to talk to me about issues between DD and Maggie. Apparently my daughter is quite the instigator and I was a little shocked at what I heard, DH thought I should not meddle in DD's friendship, she is, after all, 10 years old. So I let it go. Once in a while I would ask DD about Maggie and she'd say things are fine and to let it go, to please not get involved. FFW to today ... I get another call from Maggie's mom regarding issues ; but she says some stories have changed since last time and she thinks the best thing would be to set up a "meeting" us moms and the girls to talk things through... she offered to go for Lunch at McDonald's on Saturday.
In a way I don't want their awesome friendship to die. On the other hand I don't know how I feel about a whole "meeting" with the girls to hash out emotional diarhea.
What would you do ???
