Is it possible she acts like a special snowflake? No kid has time for that mess.

Oh brother. No wonder no one wants to play with your kid. She isn't the special snowflake you tell her she is.

Wait till your daughter hits middle school...girls can be downright vicious to other girls...my heart bled for my daughter when she was ignored and cast aside by a "friend"...there is nothing more you can do except be her biggest supporter...which it sounds like you are doing already...I always told my daughter that you don't need a lot of friends just one good one!!! In 7th grade she found that one special friend and they stayed close all through high school and even roomed together first year of college...so it does turn around for most...but as a mother it hurts to watch your child go through this...

Just listen when she explains the situation then ask "what can be done about this problem" and act like you are trying to figure it out but just can't she will probably come up with a suggestion then respond "what a great idea try that tomorrow". You empower her to solve her own problems, don't become over involved and don't overreact. it's easy to get too caught up in these situations because it is hard to see your child excluded but unfortunately there isn't a lot we can do.

I have been there with my daughter. My daughter used to upset when she was like 5. Only thing you can do is let her to get use to NO. Elder child is 28 and you have 8 year old kid too. when she request something as an example say NO that is how I let my daughter learn. It is quiet possible your younger kid being spoiled by adult siblings too. And she expect the same from school too. But even little girls can be very mean to each other. The best thing is make your child to stand for her self and have a bit of thick skin.
