hi all- I am new here, so let me start with saying it is nice to find a board for this age group! I am posting this on another board on ivillage that I belong to as well, so sorry if any of you read both and get the message twice.
as for the issue: we just moved to my hometown after years of searching for a house here. Right when we moved I introduced my oldest dd to one of the girls in the town who I didn't know well, but I know her mother pretty well and they are a super sweet family. So dd played with this girl a few times over two weeks and then one of the times dd called the girl, she was told that girl couldn't play today. and the next time she called, and the next, and the next. The excuses this girl uses are insane- very obvious she doesn't want to play with my dd. The girl is 1 year older than my dd, in case that matters.
Now I have since introduced my dd to other girls, her age, who she plays with wonderfully and gets along with great. Two in particular call often to have my dd come over. Yet she insists on calling the other girl every few days! She now wants to invite that girl to her bday party.
So now I am stuck: do I say something to my dd and point out that maybe "sara" doesn't want to play with her? do I just say nothing and let dd figure it out on her own? I just don't know what to do... I feel so bad for her. This other girl is a bit snarky and rude, so I am kind of glad that the friendship isn't attaching very well, though I feel bad for introducing the girls- but her mother is so sweet and nice, I assumed the girl would be the same way... ugh...
