how 8yr olds can get along with other 8yr olds?

My 8yr old is having a problem making friends with other girls her age. My daughter feels the need to be first in everything and so does the other child. My daughters the only child.

    Well I think it has something to do with being an only child. If she is the only one at home she doesn't have to share or compete with siblings. I have a friend who has a boy who is the only child. He hates to loose and when he does he throws a fit and stomps off crying. He hates to share and other children do not want to play with him. I would maybe try to set up play dates and try to encourage her to share and to take turns being first.

    She just need a little coaching in cooperation, sharing, taking turns and empathy. Some kids learn it from siblings, others learn when they start to make friends.
