I wish we didn't need this, but glad it was there for us.

I wish we didn't have to buy this for my daughter, but we did. Her situation was also physical. Her "best friend" would react negatively and sometimes physically when she didn't get her way. I didn't realize how bad it was until she came home with one of the worst black eyes I've ever seen. My heart literally broke into a million pieces when my 7 year old broke down in tears because she was worried her "friend" wouldn't be her friend anymore if she got her in trouble. She was also worried that all the kids at school would hate her if her "friend" got in trouble.
This book was recommended to me by a friend of mine and I really think it helped, even though the situation was different. The last 2 months my daughter has built new and healthy relationships with children who don't try to control her.
