If the kids are playing a game she will quit if she knows she can’t or won’t win. If it’s a game she doesn’t want to play she sulks until she gets her way to play the game she wants or snatches toys, etc from my daughter to have what she wants. I’ve tried to explain that not everyone can win and nobody wins all the time. I’ve also tried suggesting that they take it in turns to choose the game they want to play and I’ve also explained that nobody should snatch something from someone else just because they want it, but I don’t know how to get through to her and I have no idea how to approach this with her mother. I know how upset my daughter gets because she doesn’t understand the moodiness of her friend and having gone through it with a best friend in my teens I know how it hurts.
