My daughter has gone to the same school and been with the same children since she started school.I see on facebook all the pictures of the girls in her class getting together for birthdays,and other things. It makes me so sad that they never, never invite her. sometimes they even leave from sports to go to the outings and she is the only one left behind. It was the very same thing with my other children. My children are not mean, they dont act out. what is it? It breaks my heart,
Some kids make friends easier than others. There are some skills that kids need to learn from their parents. Please have a private meeting with your kids teachers. Ask specifically for their insight into a. Is what you suspect a valid observation?, b. what can you do to help your children learn friend making skills? One necessity, no offense, is good personal hygiene and clean, peer group standard, clothes. Kindness, the art of being kind, is another. And being a bully is a growing no-no. Get a few self help books from the library, on how to raise a successful child. Good luck.
I know how you feel my DD had a bday party and i told her she can invite two friends well when everyone got the word of that they were her best friend! and now hardly any of them will play with her at school. Rips my heart out!
Sad to say I have done all those things. I have hounded the school forever asking them to please help her to fit. They say it is really not a concern of the schools about her personal issues. They only concern themselves with academics. As far as hygiene and dress my daughter showers every day and dresses like other students. she is very beautiful with lovely features. She has nothing that makes her a target.She is definitely not a bully. You can tell when she is with these kids she is quiet, her head often is down and she seems like a beat puppy. Im most afraid they are ruining her self esteem.
Its sad. why dont the parents see that they are letting out one little girl, and invite her. Its makes me sad.
thank you everyone for your advice and support. I dont think I will ever know why we dont fit in this community. My children and are family are just human beings that want friends and to belong. We obviously have given it our all to reach out and try. I dont always understand Gods plan or why he would want my children and are family to suffer so. Sometimes life's journey is more than one an bare.
