Well 8 year old DD came home last night all negative about her new coach. She had this coach about 4 times before and hasn't complained much about him. The only thing she said about him was that he was tough. Tonight her carpool was back on for the first time since the new coach came and the girl she carpools with complained to her mom the whole 30 min ride home about the coach. DD comes home saying how much she dislikes that new coach and how mean he is. I know this has come from this girl and her mom. I have had some problems before with this situation and the negativity it produces. I really need this carpool as it really helps me out. I did talk to DD and explained that I thought she was letting this others girls feeling become her feelings and she needs to seperate how she feels from what this other girl feels. What else can I do pull a plug on this negativity without losing my carpool?
