1. Teach her how to play smart with others
We often forget play is practice for real life. Accordingly, our daughters need to know how to tell playmates to stop and to also stop when friends ask. While this might seem simple, for young children it can be hard to know when to back off because play itself can be inherently rough.

The approach? Teach kids to stop when the other person isn't having fun anymore. This is a context kids can usually understand. Role play with your children and take turns saying, "Stop, this isn't fun for me." By getting familiar with the words, they'll be more likely to use them and to also recognize when their playmates aren't enjoying what they're doing. In turn, this will hopefully transfer with them to adulthood.
