I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions for picture books about standing up for yourself, what real friendship looks like, etc for the preschool crowd.
Long story short, my almost 4 year old is telling me that a “friend” at school is dictating who my son can play with and how he plays, telling on him for things he didn’t do and telling him he’s wrong about things that are true. He’s my first child so I’m guessing this is pretty normal and his teachers are already keeping a closer eye on them. I just don’t know what else to say to him other than suggesting he take a break from this friend/walking away/saying Stop,etc/ getting a teacher. He wants to be his friend so badly and I want to support him in navigating this imbalance into a successful and appropriate friendship, if possible. But I also don’t want my kid to be steamrolled. Anyway, books have always been very helpful for us so any suggestions would be great! Other non-book suggestions welcome too!
