Lately, my dd has been complaining a lot about friends at school, "nobody likes me, so and so didn't invite me to the b-day party, everyone hates me..." This has happened before, but it just seems like lately it is everyday. She seems to be very sensitive to what other kids say/think.
She does not have a "best friend" in class, but rather has many friends that she plays with. Her teacher always says that she is very well liked and gets along nicely with everyone in the class. She has taken a special role with one of the special needs children in the class this year, and has basically been her advocate and helper. The teacher has commented of her very kind and generous heart with this child.
She is in a Montessori class so there are 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders in the class.
I just feel so sad when she says these things. She seems to get so overwhelmed. I try to just listen and confirm her feelings - but I so bad want to fix it.
Is this normal for this age? She is very sensitive...should I worry? Any suggestions?
