Six year old girl gets snotty with other kids
I try to have girls over to play with my six year old daughter. She seems all excited about it -- and then about half way through the playdate -- she becomes a real snot.
She will get bossy and upset if the other child isn't doing what she wants, she gets obsessed about making sure she gets her "fair share" or turn, and everything the other child does or says starts bugging her. Usually the other child is oblivious to this but I can hear the snottiness and irritation in her voice.
It is very frustrating because I think by now (age 6) she should be able to play nicely one on one with another child. I am also so concerned that she may be acting this way at another person's house (my DH seems to think probably not -- it's a territorial thing).
Maybe I should shorten her playdates some (I usually have kids over for 3 hours). Is this normal or is my child doomed to never have a best friend?
