Peer group drama starts early
Wed, 04-16-2014 - 1:28pm

My daughter is 4, and she has already had her first experience with the pressures and heartache of dealing with her peer group.  I've dealt with this before with my older children, but I didn't remember it starting so early.  Poor thing.  I think we handled it okay as parents, but it's still hard to see your little one go through it.  Sometimes, we want to take more action than simply offering our children words of encouragement.  Sometimes, we want to do something drastic, but don't.  You can read about how we handled this particular situation on my blog, where I share any and all things parenting, including: diy projects, recipes, book recommendations, craft ideas and whatever is currently happening on my carousel from hell...or in my bucket of joy... depending on the day.  http://stripedleftsock.weebly.com/1/post/2014/04/lessons-in-life-and-puppy-love.html
