The Elder was quiet on his way home today. He finally burst out that he and his best friend are not friends anymore.
He's devastated, and I'm broken-hearted for him. I kind of saw this coming when the other two guys in their formerly tight foursome got kind of down on this one kid because, as they said, he was "being a jerk" to them.
The two he was being a jerk to were still in fifth grade, while the Elder and this kid moved up to middle school.
Now it seems he doesn't need my son anymore just like he didn't need the younger two guys anymore. He feels free to not only cut off the friendship, but also to a) gang up on my son with another child, and b) rub my son's nose in the fact that he's been talking poorly about him in one of his classes.
I'm sickened and disgusted. If this continues, it smells alot like bullying.
I just wish I could fix all this for him...
