difficult child is having such a difficult time with being jealous of some friends. You see, difficult child has a friend close by that has another friend over for sleepovers and difficult child is not included. The kid spends days at the friends house and difficult child boils over it. I overheard him telling another friend that the kids parents don't care about him because they let him stay for a week at a time. We know all parents involved and they are nice people and what they do is none of our concern. I asked difficult child, easy child, and difficult child friend to come in the house and explained that I overheard what they were saying. difficult child was stunned and looked as though he was going to cry. I explained that they do things a different way and that we make different choices. Neither of us is wrong just different. He just finds it strange that the kids parents don't miss him. difficult child has many friends but still cannot deal with be excluded. We do allow him sleepovers and vice versa. I just wish he could understand and deal with things a little better. His mood was crappy today even though he had another friend here all day.
