PediatricMD :

Hello & welcome to Just Answer!

If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.

PediatricMD :

The information is too limited and the context of the situation is also not clear,

PediatricMD :

This can be a perfectly normal thing, but is unusual

PediatricMD :

since generally speaking the peer groups, likes & dislikes and the developmental stages are vastly different in these age groups

PediatricMD :

I would recommend that if there is any concern, then this may be gently evaluated by a child counselor/ psychologist, so that the exact nature / reason of this friendship can be elucidated

PediatricMD :

Please get back for any questions,

PediatricMD :

do leave a positive feedback too
