What the Expert Says:

If you haven't already had a meeting with your daughter's teacher, I would schedule a meeting with her and see what her perspective is on the matter. I would talk with your daughter and have her write out the names of the kids with whom she would like to be friends. You could then arrange some play dates with these girls. I would also think about activities outside of school (i.e., sports, music, drama, church, etc.) that your daughter could get involved with in order to expand her friendship choices. The more opportunities she has to make different friends the better off she'll be.
