Address the mother or the child?
« on: Jan 09, 2013 @ 10:09 PM »
I have a three year old little girl and we are part of a MOMs club. We had one of our park days and my daughter wanted to play with two other girls that were a year older than she was. One of the girls told her that there was "no room" for her to play with them, while the other girl said that she could play with them. My daughter turned away and seemed very sad and upset about being pushed away by the first girl. This has happened before with the same exact girl telling her that she was "too little" to play with her. It broke my heart to see her so sad and upset. I asked her if she wanted to play with the other girls but she just shook her head and said "no". I felt awful and couldn't stop thinking about this incident the rest of the day. My question is: if this happens again, should I address the girl and ask her to include my daughter or should I ask her mother to help out with this issue?

That is tough.  If you know the family, maybe talk with the other parents and let them handle it.   They would best know how to reach their kiddo.
