I can't tell if this is normal for preschoolers, or if DD is just dramatic. (well, ok, I know she does tend to be dramatic, but I don't know if she's just being overly dramatic about this issue specifically). DD seems to play well with the kids in her class from what I've observed, and I've never heard from her teachers about any problems between her and her peers. But every day on the car-ride home, I ask her about her day...what did you do, who'd you play with, etc. And every.single.day she has complaint after complaint about the kids in her class- "Elijah was mean to me", "Charlotte's not my friend anymore, she's Lily's friend now", "Taylor wouldn't let me play with her", "Ryan's not my friend, now he's Parker's friend". I always try to put a positive spin on it and say something like "Oh, well that's okay, you have lots of other friends you can play with, right?" But again I get a negative response, about how someone was mean to her or wouldn't play with her. Does your preschooler do this? I've thought about asking her teachers how she's been relating to her friends, but just haven't found a good time to do it.
