  • Who suggested the therapist? I would considerate it- it doesn't hurt anyone to have someone to talk to. Is she trying to make more friends or is she content?? I know my son is a loner, but he just likes to do his own thing and doesn't care about what the other kids were doing... Maybe having some of these girls over to your house would give you some more insight. Just because their parents are odd doesn't mean the girls can't be good friends to your daughter.

  • I was a loner as a child. Still am. Not every one is a popular person. Not everone is out going and has a lot of friends. As long as she is happy I would not worry about it.

  • I am also like that quiet and shy even as an adult !!!! My 2nd daughter seems similar to me has a few close friend and yes the one seems to have a diffrent kind of home life then we have but I try to teach my children not to judge and accept everyone and look out for the under dog. It is okay not to be popular as long as she is happy. If she is unhappy then there is something to worry about and look farther into and maybe ask her teachers our she is interacting in school and so on.

  • There's nothing wrong with being a loner. If you don't like the people she's hanging around, maybe help her get involved in an activity or if she likes art or music or something you could get her a nice set up having to do with what she likes.
