What is the age?
Around 7yrs kids start to realise they need to have best best friends and little girls can get challenging in the classroom when they select their bestest best friend and glue themselves to them. It passes.

If younger, had the little girl of your pal had a recent friendship breakup that has prompted this new need to find a friend.

A good sentence is: 'I want to play with you at lunchtime but I want to read a book for this playtime, see you later'.

Try not to worry. When they start Yr1 they will start the social curriculum in class which deals with friendships. Your DD just sounds a bit more advanced than the rest.

I think your advice sounds good, she would be kind to the girl but still insist on having her space. Turtleann's way of putting it is also very clear.

ar ok, well maybe have word with the teacher, the kids usually obey teachers so if you say to her she may just say leave er alone or get busy with something a t.a in primary schools and they are usualy quite structured, the teachers ave many activities and sends a choice over to do different things soshe could make sure dont spend as much time together. hope that makes comp playing up ha

maybe you need to see your friend away from the home, so her DD does not come round quite so much.

your DD sounds fab! You can't be unapproachable, because she has come to you, but she tried to sort it herself first.

just saw that you are having this girl again tomorrow! really, is it time to put the brakes on her coming round to your house?
