  • I don't know what town you live in... but, you might check around about things like girl scouts or dance classes... whatever DD is interested in... social activities always lead to friends. Plus, it will help her to have something positive to do in her spare time.

  • well i woldnt want my dd playing with a bratty kid anyway LOL the YMCA has a lot of great programs for kids and they arent that expensive and if your income is really low they even have help with both memberships and youth programs. Both my little ones play soccer among other things. That might be worth looking into.

  • Bake cookies and treats and send your daughter extra to share with her classmates. Maybe she will be the one to teach them to be civil and socially successful. Above all teach here she is good enough for herself and need not change to be another carbon copy of the others. She is an original.
