How can I help my daughter overcome her shyness and make friends?
She is really having a hard time fitting in with the new school, she started out with all sorts of friends and now it has dwendeled down to maybe one if she is lucky.
I don't know what the problem is but it seems as if no one wants to be a friend, no matter what we say it has not helped. She has been on the gold honor roll. She is not stuck up, and tries hard to fit in. I have been told tha when she makes a friend, she tries to smother them and it turns them away, she is also a tom boy and not a girly girl.
I really hate to see her so sad, she is hurt when she hears when other friends invite people over and don't include her, I have stopped at lunch time and she seems so sad, she has a hard time trying to figure out who she can sit by and feel like she belongs. I want to help her but don't know what more I can do. I have talked to the school and I have not gotten much help there.
I love her so much and want to take away her pain, I want to see her happy and enjoy her time in school, I have also noticed the other girls in her school want to act much older then they are, and my child is in no hurry to grow up. She wants to enjoy life to it's fullest. So I hope that some one out there can help give me ideas or something new to try.
