If the young girls and the mothers are not interested in maintaining a relationship with you and your daughter, then move on. Your daughter is young and has many more years to create new friendships. If you keep asking for playdates, it will seem as though you are desparate for a relationship with them. Try to associate with other mothers and their children. Friends come and go. This can become a great learning experience for your daughter as well.


If you need further assistance, please inquire. ACCEPT so that I can be compensated for my efforts.
