Yes it’s great for kids to share and invite other kids to play with them. However I don’t think it’s necessary ALL the time. Nor does it mean that they are ‘not being nice.’ Adults and also kids need their space and time, as well. It’s unfortunate they said it the way they did and it hurts your child’s feelings but these things will happen. It’s okay to teach your own child that ‘these kid want alone time, let’s do something else’ or ‘maybe we can play with them another time.’
