My daughter gets so upset about the other children at school not wanting to play with her. It really bothers her and this isn't the first time. I have reached out to her teacher about this and she has been supportive by talking with my daughter. How do I get this kid to stop being so discouraged about people not wanting to be bothered with her?

No rude comments please?

How does your daughter act around this and what are the things she tells you? How do you talk to your daughter when she brings this up? How old is she?

Act around what? We encourage her to be the shining star that she is. She has a hard time with the inconsistencies of her friendships. She doesn't understand why one day she has a friend and the next day she doesn't.

By act around that I mean does she come home crying? Does she act depressed and quiet? Does she complain about her friends?

What do you say to her in reaction to what she says or does?

How old is she?

Do you have a good relationship with her?

Wait, you just said in your other thread that your kids are not children but are grown.

I am curious also.

Is this your granddaughter, by chance? Are you trying to "help" one of your adult kids with their parenting?

She is sad and may cry. Anytime someone does something mean to her she lets us know. She is 8 (I have a set of twins and my oldest is 28). Yes we are close. She and her twin brother are close.

Okay, you need to make this stuff clearer in your threads. In the other thread, people are assuming that ALL of your children are grown, since you said your kids are grown.

I would rather ask this question in the parenting forum so more can relate.
