Is she learning bad things from her

friend? I know this will sound silly but I am a little worried. Nellie has a friend who is 2 and this little girl is going through the mean and selfish stage. The thing is Nellie just takes it. She will hand over whatever she has just to not her her friend scream. (She hates the sound of crying). If the little girl throws a tantrum Nellie gets so afraid she hides behind me. I'm a little worried Nellie is learning just to take it if that makes sense. No I don't want her to hit or be mean in any way, but in a way I'd like her to not get off her bike when I know she's having fun etc. I will say that 80% of the time they do play very nicely but at least once a day upwards of ten times a day Nellie will give up a toy or something when this little girl wants it. BTW She is not like this with her siblings though she will scream if they take something away from them.

Nellie is learning to be bullied. I would cut off the relationship. If you do not feel you can stop doing play dates, then I would stand there and intervene and teach Nellie to put up boundaries and how to protect herself.
