Drama in 1st grade?

I don't remember ever having drama until much later in school. The school my dd goes to has a ski/skate program during the winter. My dd chose skating. Dh and I went up with her one day a couple weeks ago to watch her skate and to skate with her. Well she was mainly hanging out with this one friend named Mackenzie. They have been close all year. Well I saw Mackenzie sitting on the ice with this other 1st grader and saw my dd going over..so I casually skated around and overheard one of them saying my dd said something. She has an honest look on her face when she said she didn't. I have a feeling it was something stupid and I only heard a bit of it..no idea what they were bickering about. It just didn't seem nice. They got over it quickly. I didn't pry.

I had no idea there was girl drama so early. My dd isn't even 7 yet. How can I handle this in the future?

You let them work it out. Kids will be kids. I'm not sure I really see to be concerned about. I remember kids starting all sorts of crap when I was younger.

Oh yes. One of my most hurtful 'drama' memories is from 1st grade, personally. Mostly though they get over it quickly and it's pretty silly to use adults.

Dd1 is in 2nd grade but she and her friends have fights sometimes about rather silly stuff (to me). If dd mentions it (usually because they didn't resolve it themselves by the end of school) I listen and ask her how she can solve it the next day. Usually she knows the right thing to do but sometimes I help her brainstorm ideas. I have never stepped in beyond that. While I will gladly listen and guide as needed ultimately dd has to learn to solve her own problems like these. These aren't major issues that require my help so I use them as learning experiences for her.

Re: Drama in 1st grade?

OMG...my niece is in 2nd grade, and she has cousins who are 5 and 9. They were all at her birthday party this weekend and it was nothing but drama!! My SIL (not the mother of any of them) had to go over and physically shut off a video game they were playing b/c they wouldn't stop fighting and screaming at each other. It was crazy!! Made me glad I have a boy. LOL
