Yesterday we were sitting in the car talking and Daddy asked me about a little girl we drove to a sporting event as a favor last week.
The girls seemed to get along well in the car last weekend; why doesn’t your daughter hang out with her anymore?
I explained that my daughter and this girl became very close friends two years ago in 2nd grade but after a while the friend started getting to possessive. Nobody else was allowed to play with or even talk to my daughter without this girl getting nasty to that other person and an argument with the girl trying to play with them would quickly ensue. They would even push away my other daughter who is very close in age to my older daughter and they often have the same friends (that’s going to be fun when they start liking boys). She had to be touching my daughter and hanging all over her all the time to. Eventually nobody even tried to play with them anymore because they were so closely attached at the hip and closed off to anybody else. At first my daughter ate it up and she loved the attention. Her whole world revolved around only being with this friend, BUT after a while it was too much for my daughter and slowly but surely she wanted to talk to some of other friends and the friendship turned bad.
Daddy listened to me and then answered jokingly She must be a Dominant.
I took a minute to absorb the information then I answered That’s not being dominant, that’s being a suffocating ass.
Daddy didn’t say much after that.
