Hello all, I have a 13year old dd and she is my oldest and I am having a hard time to get her up and going. It is the summer time and she always says that she is bored and she never has anything to do, but she won't do anything.... She stays stuck in her room all day, I have to tell her to get up and clean up, take a shower, brush her teeth, go eat ect...She will sit in her room and just watch tv and read books...all day. I am fine with her reading books, but she will read a book at the dinner table, I told her that is rude and she shouldn't do that and she was like it is boring...we are eating dinner. We do not have a real connection or a friendly relationship...I talk to her but I get these one word answers... she say she has friends at school, but I never known her to interact with any of them....What can I do? She is very lazy and she just keeps to herself. Should I be worried?

Think of it like this. She could be out causing trouble, getting into things, making you worry. Be grateful! :)
I was kinda like that. I was just really shy. Books were my comfort zone. There was no one to please, they were a different world. A great place to hide, or escape to. On the off side she might be depressed. But for me, I was just quiet and shy.
Give her guidelines, but please be patient with her. This may be just her personality. There is not much you can do about it. She'll come out of her shell someday.
