My stepdaughter (9) has trouble keeping friends. She seems to make friends easily (she's outgoing, outspoken, etc) but for some reason she always tends to alienate them. She has had trouble in the past with stealing from other children (we believe she was acting out after her BM left), but we're making progress with that issue. We also heard that she was threatening another child at school but since then the children have made up and she hasn't done it again. Anyway, she told us recently that she's invited other children to come over and play, but no one wants to come over or they're being told by their parents that they are not allowed to play with her. Her father and I are beside ourselves because although she has had some issues, she's not a bad kid. What can we do?
