What the Expert Says:

No it is not normal for a 10 year old not to play with friends outside of the house although many don't care to sleep over at anyone's house. Ask and find out why if this is a change.  If this behavior is not new, ask your pediatrician about signs of insecurity or anxiety that may be dealt with now before she isolates more.
