Chooses Friends over Family Members.
My 4yr old daughter has SPD. We are waiting for therapy to begin, so we don't yet have a complete understanding on how to deal with her tantrums, transitioning and coping skills. She is obsessed with playing with the two neighborhood girls.
She has often ignored family members(grandparents) for these children. My daughter loves spending time with my mom, and does so usually at least once a week. She was on her way out the door to leave with her, but my daughter saw her friend and immediately changed her tune and would not go with my mom. My mom was crushed. I have NO idea what to do in this situation, and struggle with her obsession to play with these children daily.
Some of these girls are not the BEST friends to have. And now I find myself trying to find a way to reassure my mom that my daughter loves her, and also I am struggling to find a way to teach my daughter to appreciate her family members.
