kids and their controlling friends
Dd's got one. Oh boy! We'll call her Jane.
She gets super agitated when my dd is playing with other friends. She constantly pressures my dd to say that they are bffs and even though dd has told her she doesn't have one bff. Jane even created an instagram of them being bffs. She constantly texts dd and gets annoyed if dd spends time with other friends. If dd hangs out with someone else, this girl will go play with someone else and take about 10 instagrams pictures and send them to dd. She will also text dd to see if she wants to come over and when dd replies she will say "oops, I meant to text someone else, sorry."
They competed at the same level last year and because dd had an injury at the beginning of the year Jane has moved up a level ahead of dd. Dd has slowly been coming back and has done very well at her last couple of meets. Jane has struggled with being in a more competitive group. Jane has made comments to my dd about how dd only won because her competition is bad or most recently has told dd to get out of a group picture because dd was not in their level.
I know this is just because Jane is feeling insecure with herself, but damn, it's kind of hard. Fortunately, my dd is very easy going and nothing really rattles her. She will tell the girl to chill out. It's kind of hard because we see this girl multiple times a week and if they have a falling out I could see it being a not so pleasant situation. I am just trying to teach my dd to stick up for herself and not be a doormat.
Anyone have experience with this?
