>>As far as the friend that she doesn't aswer her phone to, I told her that ignoring a friend is a form of bullying. They have been friends since Kinder and I can see that they have different interests, classes, and friends now, but they live just live a street apart and it's only natural that she's looking for someone to play with. I told her that I'm not going to push you to play with her but if she is your friend, you need to be kind enough to answer the phone and let her know that you are busy and can't play right now. <<
Ah, I just read on and found this comment.
I'm seeing two different things here and would react differently.
I'll do the friend one first because it's easy.
I know the time of day or activity that my kids can't respond to a call.
