Aww bless her at my sons school they have friendship benches, so if anyone is lonely and needs someone to play with they can sit there, and generally someone will include them, or an adult supervisor would make sure they were ok. Does the school have anything like that?

I've never heard of that! It's a great idea!

I haven't had to deal with something like this yet, but I can just imagine how you must feel as her mommy. Bless her.

I am on the other side though......the other day we walked pass a girl in the shops and my girl said to me "mommy, I don't like that girl" and sadly said it loud so the other girl probably heard it. I said sorry to the mommy and told my daughter to say hello to the girl. After we walked out of reach I told my girl that what she said was not nice and that it would break the other girl's heart. The I asked her how she would feel if a strange girl told her she doesn't like her. She replied that she would be sad and then I explained to always be friendly to people. You don't always have to like everyone, but to say hello and exchange a smile is just enough.

I would like to teach her the same with making new friends and feel in a way teachers should try to keep an eye and maybe teach young children these principles.

Our school also has the friendship bench and they also have the year five and six children come into the infant playground as buddies, they start group games, play with other children who are feeling lonely, read stories etc. I suggested both to the school if I was you.

This is why I'm glad my daughter goes to a really small school.

All the children play together there throughout the year groups, my LO has friends in every year group, they all get on so well. some kids might not want to play with others all the time but there's always someone who will want to play and the older children are very mindful of if they see a younger children by themselves talking to them and playing with them.

I think my daughter has said to me once that someone didn't want to play with her and I told her to play with someone else then and that she doesn't want to spend time with someone who doesn't want to spend time with her and she hasn't mentioned anything since but I know she isn't short of friends so it's not something i have to worry about luckily.

I hope your LOs ok
