*sigh* it's gonna be a LOOOONG summer. I live in one of 2 apartment buildings that are side by side with a courtard inbetween. Within those 2 buildings, there are 10YO twin boys, 7YO twin girls with- a 10YO brother, 6 & 8YO brothers, 2 10 YO girls (best friends), and my difficult child. Now, the 7YO twins generally play pretty well with difficult child. Until the 10YO girls come home. Then they want NOTHING to do with difficult child. They run and hide from her, ya know, snotty girl stuff. The 10YOs go with the flow. Sometimes they try to incluse difficult child. SOmetimes they tell her to get lost because she is being mean. Well today difficult child got real upset that everyone ditched her, so she told them that they were a bunch of a-holes. Yes she was wrong, and yes she was punished (and yes, she was with DEX this weekend, which is I am SURE where she picked up the word, but that does not excuse it, she knows better) but GRRRRR these kids are rotton. It kills me to see my kid so hurt. She is ALWAYS the one who is left out. I mean I do play dates with kids from school as often as I can but this is every day. Breaks my heart.
