How do you decipher the difference and deal with your child’s “frenemies” at school? Should you solely talk to your child about frenemies or should the teacher or even the parents be talked to? I don’t know whether that would create more trouble or less. Or whether that should only be for more severe issues that don’t look likely to resolve on their own. I guess it really depends on how understanding the parents of the other child are and if they would have a conversation with their child about the difficulties they may cause to other kids through their words and actions.
