Reply To: Making Friends


My Daughter is 9 and has a very hard time making friends. With her impulsiveness she often says very hurtful things and thus loses the friend. We remind her constantly to think before she talks but very often it just comes out. She feels more at ease with kids that are younger. She has a hard time recognizing the social cues. Once a friendship is ruined she tries to make amends and doesn’t understand why they don’t want to be her friend. So I apologize if this doesn’t offer much advice but maybe it offers a little support. Hang in there. I understand what you are going thru.
