How to explain a best friend break up to a 7-year-old?
My son (7) has been best friends with another little boy (also 7) about as far back as he can remember. They met in preschool.
That is where I met the little boy's mom. We became “acquaintance friends”. We noticed our sons gravitated toward one another so we began arranging playdates, which we had on a regular basis for many years.
