Hello everyone. Does anyone have any tips on how to handle a 4.5 yo child who is possessive over a certain friend? One of the girls in my class- we'll call her K- does not handle her "bestie"- we'll call her B- playing with other friends well at all. Another girl, M, has joined their little group and while sometimes they all 3 can play together and get along, it's not always hunky dory. Anytime M & B are playing together without K, she has a meltdown (and by meltdown I mean screaming at me and others, crying, etc.) and says she's feeling left out. I understand why she feels that way, but I truly don't believe that M&B have ever "tried" to leave K out. I do feel that sometimes B wants a break from K because she can be a little controlling in their play and intense. K has no interest in making other friends. Anytime a friend other than M or B ask to play with her, she says no and that only B&M are her friends. I'm at a loss as to what I should do. Please help. I'm desperate!
