Every Little girl dreams of being a princess, some even often say they are one…but when they start acting like one…that’s when it can be or become a problem. And, for many school age kids, especially little girls it is. While many young darlings may look cute and innocent, they are in essence little divas in training…and if your child is not, your little one may feel left out. Even popular girls become “unpopular” as the “in-crow” tend to change with the times as children experiment with and discover the “politics” of popularity and social hierarchy including trying their hand at being cool, peer pressure, cliques and having power over others….even if they don’t yet quite fully understand what they are doing…and it may in fact all be relatively “innocent”. Make sure you explain this to your child and remind her that it likely has NOTHING to do with her per se…but is just part of the ever-changing social scene. Its also best to help your child expand his or her social circle by involving her or him in extracurricular activities outside of school where there are different kids to associate and make friends with.
