Toddlers & Older Children <

I'm really confused as what to do so hopefully you guys can enlighten me. My 6 year old daughter has lots of friends at school but often plays in a small group of 3-4 kids. One girl in particular keeps running away from her if she speaks/plays with another friend, telling her that she 'doesn't like her anymore'. My little one is a very mellow kid and hates upsetting anybody she will run after her constantly telling her 'of course I like you!'. It's getting to be too much for her and now her little friend has taken to telling other kids that my daughter doesn't like her and those kids are starting to have a go at her. I understand that this child has been going through a lot of personal problems at home and I really do feel for her but I'm at a loss when my daughter comes home in tears. Trying to be empathic towards her friend but not at the expense of my child's feelings.

Your daughter must speak with more children. Then they will not think she don't like them. So she will have a lot of friends.

Why are the other children having a go? So what if it were true & she had decided she no longer wanted to be friends, that is her choice & has nothing to do with them. If she decided she no longer liked chocolate would they all be having the same go telling her she was in the wrong?
This is one to be discussed with the teacher as it is sadly becoming 'emotional bullying' - by claiming your child dislikes them she is making your child feel guilty & getting a response, in telling the other children those children are then adding to the bullying...
