Hello! I am new to this site and looking for advice. My daughter is 12 and in 7th grade. She as 3 besties and is currently having drama with one of them (I will call her "D"). D has told a boy that my daughter talks to that he can do better and that my daughter isn't good enough for him. D likes this boy and is trying to get this boy to like her and not my daughter (which she has suceeded in doing by badmouthing her and doing who knows what else). My issue is not the boy as they are only 12, but rather the way D has talked about my daughter behind her back. My daughter's reponse was to post some things on InstaGram tagging her other besties but clearly leaving D out. She also posted something to the effect of "true friends don't talk about you behind your back"...etc, etc, etc. Now D is acting hurt when she actually started it in the first place with the backstabbing. I'm trying to help my daughter through this without letting my negative experiences with past friendships get in the way (which is very hard). My daughter feels that she deserves an apology (which I agree) and won't talk to D until she gets it. If I know my daughter she will apologize as well once she receives an apology first. D isn't admitting that she backstabbed even though the boy and her other two besties pointed her out in person as having said it. My own horrible experiences with being backstabbed make me want to tell my daughter to beware and stay away from this girl, but I kind of know that may not be the best advice. Can anyone help?
