14 yo Social Issues


I have a 14 year old daughter who is having a very difficult time with a friend. The girl is very competitive with a "me first" kind of attitude that seems to be perpetuated by her parents. We carpool with her, they are on the same school volleyball team, and the same club volleyball team. I understand that there are 2 sides to every story and this is probably normal 14 year old drama. My daughter seems to be the target of this girl's competition, though, and she comes home hurt, angry, and a bit obsessed with this girl's actions. My daughter was chosen captain of the volleyball team. This girl's parents complained, and now there are rotating captains. She has said that she doesn't care if she wins, as long as she beats my daughter. I'm trying to help my daughter - I let her vent to me and I try to give her advice on how to deal with this without getting too involved. It doesn't seem to be working.
