Being a girl is hard! Especially when we’re young and learning how to develop, keep and nurture friendships. As girls, we easily get our feelings hurt by friends, even though most of the time it’s unintentional.
For young girls finding and new friend on their own can be so exciting that they tend to throw their whole heart into that friendship. Then one day they head to the playground to find their new BFF playing with another friend leaving them feeling rejected and abandoned.
Everyone has felt left out now and then. It’s how your daughter reacts to the situation that we’re going focus on this week.
Their first thoughts might be to blame the new girl, to tell their BFF they have to pick between the 2 friends, or even to run off and pout. None of these are a good reaction. Remind her that what she’s feeling at that moment is temporary.
There’s no rule saying you can’t have more then one BFF. There is no limit on how many friends a girl can have. Why not give the new girl a chance? She may be incredibly nice and turn out to be an even better friend.
So lets jump into this weeks Journaling Prompt.
