Do your kids get along with all their friends? or is there problems with the "friends group"? is there just one that really bothers you? share and share your solutions on what you do to help your child deal with it. I am sure other parents would like to have some suggestions on how to help kids get along.

Gianna gets along well with her friends this year, but last year was a whole different ball game. Her 2 best friends last year were incredibly high drama and both of them had a huge mean streak.

My daughter has developed into a peacemaker type. I don't know how else to describe it. She's not really in one group. She kind of hangs out with several very different groups (she actually has private names for each one!) and these groups don't always like one another, so she does seem to spend some time intervening in quarrels and defending one friend to another. I know it's hard on her sometimes, but she put herself in this position, probably as protection from being kicked out of a single group.


Last year, she did have one friend who really made her life miserable. This girl was hot/cold and it really put their mutual friends into

wow your daughter seems much more grown up. You should be proud she is learning to associate with different people and different situations like that and still be friends with all. Good for her. Jackie does that as well. They will do great out in the work world. its a good thing.
