I have a fairly new friend who I enjoy her company. She has an 11 yr old son who is an only child very smart and is a bit of a loner. He is bullied at school
and basically has no friends. His mom encourages him to engage in friendship etc... but he has said even in front of me that he doesn't want any friends.
The problem I have is I have two very outgoing girls who are 7 and 8 and every time we all get together my friends son puts my daughters down and bullies them
right in front of us or my girls will tell on him in front of his mother. My friend never tells her son to stop or acts as though my girls are drama queens and it's no big deal.
One time he even whipped my daughter with a jump rope. My friend will say undermining things like "oh they're acting like that because they can't get their way". I like her
and she lives down the street from me and our husbands get along. I just don't know what to do or say or if I should do or say anything to her. Any advice??
