Notoetape Posted April 27, 2014 Report Share Posted April 27, 2014 My DD has a good friend at ballet who has had a tremendous year this year. Multiple nutcracker roles, understudy for advance role in school performance, accepted to SAB SI ( DD was not) And boy! Does she let us Know about each and every single one. If the conversation is not about this girl and all she's accomplished, she finds a way to steer things back in her direction, even in a larger group this is the case. Apparently, this girl and one other have determined who are the best dancers in the studio, and make sure to socialize with only those they deem worthy. My DD is not high up on their list, so what once was a nice friendship had turned hurtful at times. The issue is, my DD still likes this girl, and is always excited whenever she is asked to do something with her, which is only when this girl needs something (a ride home, a place to go so she doesn't have to stay home alone, etc)-- the pecking order created is impacting DD confidence, so how do I help her get perspective on this friendship. They are in upper levels at studio, with not many kids in her level. Ignoring this boastful ballerina is not really an option! Quote Link to comment
