How to advise DD on her destructive jealousy?

DD is 10.8 and I have been monitoring her messages on her iPod, one of the conditions of her getting it.

She has had a couple of "boyfriends" recently (all very innocent; they only see each other at school), and she has managed to ruin her friendships with them by accusing them of being more interested in this other girl (let's call her Lucy) than in her.

DD is evidently very jealous of Lucy. She's never been the most confident of girls, for reasons we've never understood, and it's breaking my heart seeing this destructive behaviour.

How can I advise her? sad

Gong through similar here although not with boys but jealous of her friends belongings and being nasty to her friends on Skype etc.

It's so hard and I've tried to explain how she may be making her friends feel and that people choose to be friends etc

I'm watching your thread with interest.
