Only child has trouble making friends
We have an 11yr old daughter who is an only child going into 6th grade next year. She has had trouble making and keeping friends for quite awhile now. She is not shy, just does not like to take risks. She hates clicks (who doesn't?) and there are a couple of big ones in her school. She will invite girls over, they come and they seem to have a good time. But she never gets invitations or calls from other girls. She seems to have stopped trying this summer and I am always telling her to call a friend, go to the pool, something. She dances, sings in a community youth theater group and is friendly with girls there. But no true friendships. I worry. What can I do to help her? She is such a beautiful and smart young girl.
