Has your child ever had a friend...
Has your child ever had a friend who was in an unusual situation?
When Mini was in second grade she befriended a really sweet girl. The girl was in and out of foster care, her mother had issues and the brother had issues with drugs and violence towards each other. When my daughter met her the little girl was back at home, the brother was away at some type of job corp and mom was clean. After awhile things unraveled and the little girl was suddenly put back into foster care. It was really heartbreaking, the whole situation. It was especially hard to explain this to my daughter, she of course was incredibly naive.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation, parenting wise where you had to explain something to your child about their friend like this?
