My daughter was a very shy girl when she was 3-4 years old. Once entering 5 years old, she is not that shy anymore. She adores independence, and like join other kids who play around neighborhood. But in school, it is a different story. Now, she is a kindergartener. She loves to go to school. But I noticed that she will not make her first move to get to play with others. Also, I found that she is having some unfriendly behavior. One of my friend volunteered in her class and told me that my daughter said to a girl who wants to play with her that she is not her friend. Also, she told another girl that she is not her friend anymore. Sometimes, when other girls asked her if she wants to play, she replied that she just wants peace and quiet. To me, my daughter is sweet and kind of tomb boy type girl. After I found out her behavior, I talked to her and told her that it is not nice to say so. She feels offended and told me that she has her own reasons to treat that girl that way: "Because sometimes the girl is mean to me." Though we teach our kids stand up for themselves, but we don't want my daughter change to a rude and unkind girl who says hurty things to other kids. Am I concerned too much or it is a normal stage of childhood? Any suggestions? Thanks!
