Ask the Third Graders: Leaving Someone Out

What do you do when you are playing with someone and another person wants to play with you but you don’t want to play with them? What do you say?

Alexa and Madeline respond: We have all been in this situation before where we feel left out by a group of friends. It’s never a good feeling and a lot of the time, the friends aren’t trying to be mean. It’s important that you always try to be inclusive of others because you don’t want anyone to feel bad or lonely, and you could really help someone have a good day by helping them to feel included. You will feel good, too!
