Rhonda in TX Posted February 4, 2008 Share Posted February 4, 2008 DD is almost 10 and basically has no friends. She never really has. At a time when all our friends were having babies, everybody had boys. The girls started a few years after DD was born - just young enough that DD was too far ahead of them to really be friends. Even when she was in school (up to 2nd grade), there were just a couple of minor girlfriends, and they never seemed to reciprocate invitations over to play. The past couple of years, she's made a friend at church. We don't see her a lot, but we do occasionally and they always enjoy seeing each at church itself. I recently found out they are planning on moving, so that's another friendship DD has lost. I tell DD that she has many years ahead of her to find a friend (and I do believe that), but it still makes me very, very sad. We went to the Hannah Montana movie this weekend and we had nobody to call and ask to go with us. Her birthday is this month and she only has that one girl at church to invite for any type of "party". (Luckily she does not enjoy big parties.) I just do not know what to do. She is in Girl Scouts, but only sees them twice a month and hasn't really clicked with any of them. We've tried being part of a homeschool co-op, but it was very class-oriented, with little time available for real socializing. Most of the members went to church together, so friendships were already established. I just don't know what to do. I hurt for her. :( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
