Fuming about lack of honesty

So, it was move up today at school for my daughter in reception in a double intake school where they decided to mix the classes.

My daughter and another little girl are best friends and the friendship can sometimes be on the intense side. I fully acknowledge this and have tried to encourage my daughter to branch out. There is also a bit of a triangle with another little girl but fundamentally they all seem to like each other.

However today, I happened to walk through the class and overhear the mother of said little girl basically asking why the hell they hadn't been split up.

What I am annoyed about is the lack of honesty on the part of this other child's mother. If she felt there was a problem, I would have supported the children branching out with other friends and I would have tried to encourage this. I frequently speak to another mother about her daughter's involvement in the triangle and we are very relaxed about allowing them to try to sort it out between themselves.

I am really upset about the other mum's lack of honesty about this. She has never once mentioned that there is an issue and I feel that she has been very underhand never mentioning any of this to me. Now I am wondering if there is some sort of problem with my child and I am planning on going in to ask on Monday. I have already had a very open discussion with the teacher about this friendship and she acknowledged that it can sometimes be intense between my daughter and this child's daughter but she did not allude to this being any kind of problem.

I should say, my daughter and the other child in the triangle are second children and my daughter's best friend is a first child. I have definitely worried much less about my second.

Am I totally overreacting here and behaving like a child myself? Honest opinions would be welcome as I can take it!!

Thank you!!

Yes, I think you are overreacting.

Let the school deal with it.

If there is a problem, I'm sure they will be in touch. It rarely ends well when parents speak amongst themselves.
