I had another question and didn't want to muddy the waters with my previous one. Simply put, my daughter is friends with another girl (6 yrs) in her class and we are family friends as well. Our families spend a lot of time together and our sons (9) get along great. Our girls however fight, bicker, pick at each other nonstop. Both are very strong-willed, opinionated, and are exhausting to be around as an adult. I've tried to let them sort things out themselves, but they are constantly telling on each other, even pushing and hitting now.
What can I and this other girl's mom do to: 1. help them get along and 2. Make it easier for us to have them together in our homes?? It's maddening!!
