DD is...spirited. She's lovely and loving but she has her moments that make parents want to hide their kids because she's going to want to wrestle, or run around, or be the wild child she is. Within reason, I absolutely 100% encourage this!<br><br>
I also want her to have little toddler friends. She LOVES other kids.<br><br>
My one close friend and I hae very different parenting styles. Her son is very, very whiney and whenever Paige tries to go near him he practically shudders and talks about how she needs to "go away, I don't like her" and instead of being like "buck up little man" my friend goes "I know, tell her to stop that's not nice.."<br><br>
And this is when she's trying to HUG him or hold his hand!<br><br>
And the other day I had a mother over and she talked about how she likes to let her daughter figure things out on her own, which is fine. Until her daughter hits and punches my DD when she wants to play with the same toy and the mother goes "I know, she tried to take her toy and it made you mad" which makes DD feel horrible!<br><br><br>
I guess I'm just ranting as usual, but it's so hard. I feel like I'm doing something wrong here! And now I'm this bitter momma with no friends! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

My daughter sounds a lot like yours. She is 2.5 and very outgoing and active. Her "best friend" is a 4.5 year old who lives across the street who has a similar personality. My DD gets really frustrated with kids that can't communicate as well as she can, and won't play with them. Luckily we have found a kindergym class (which is more of a play group) and she has met a couple of high energy twins her own age and they all love playing together.<br><br>
I am sure eventually you will find a few friends that really click with your daughter! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
