My daughter has never been super extroverted but has always been social with a small group of friends. In the past month though, she's not reaching out to go out with anyone at all. I asked her if everything is good with them and she says yes. She seems very happy, talks about funny things that happen at school. She participates on several sports team and enjoys that. Just right now no major social ties during her down time. It is her first year in high school and she doesn't have classes with any of her old core friends. I know she talks to new people but doesn't seem to want to take the next step to do anything outside of school. I don't think it bothers her at all but it bothers me. I know she does enjoy free time to just veg, homework and sports consume a lot of her time, but they always did. Maybe this is just part of the ebb and flow of high school friendships?
**EDIT** Thanks for the answers everyone! Like I said she seems very happy! I just needed some thoughts because I'm the one sad about it...I guess I just think that if I was that young, I'd want to be out and about all the time. Sometimes I feel like she's being left out or behind, but she's never said that or indicated that. Probably my own issues. I wish she was more outgoing but I need to get over that, not her!Answer Question
