I feel like I am constantly moaning on here at the moment... My dd (7) is having friend issues at school. I am sure it's the usual stuff but I don't remember 7 being this complicated!? There is a group of girls and sometimes they play well, other times someone gets left out. It seems to be dd mostly but then I don't know how other girls feel. Is this normal at 7 and any advice?
I have told her just to ignore any silliness and play with the people who treat her well. She is also a bit of a bossy boots and takes it upon her self to make sure people are following the rules; clearly this is not how to win friends!?! So I have told her that she should bite her tongue and let the teacher deal with rule breakers!
Oh yes, fascinating to me because I thought it was just kids at the bottom who got caught up in this nonsense, but seems they all do. DD-y6 can go on for an hour about the social status of everyone in her class & who is friends with who, who broke up, who made up, who likes who, etc.
