Help with a broken heart

Hello,  I am trying really hard to help my daughter.  Her boyfriend broke up with her and she is so heart broken.  It is really hard to watch.  We are all devastated for her.

 Distract her.  Play a board game with her, take her to a movie, encourage her to do something with her friends.  She'll get through it.  It stinks, but it's part of growing up and it teaches us how to deal with disappointments.

Thank you for your response.  We are defenitly keeping her busy.  The nights are hard.  She starts to miss him and crys. I've been sleeping with her (she asked me).  It really breaks my heart to see this happen.  She is really trying.  I just don't know what more to say to her.  I'm thinking that I will not ask  her anymore and wait until she starts to talk and then only give advise if asked.

She will have to work through it.  As we know heartbreak is a part of life and needed to move through life.  How old is she and how long were they together. 

My dd took a year to get over one guy at 18 and at 22 she really moved on from a 2 year relationship after a few months.  Must have been more maturity.  It was something she had to deal with.  We supported her but nothing we said or did mattered, she had to move on.

Went through this with my oldest a year ago.  I took my DD on a mother/daughter day the Saturday after the breakup (I think it was on a Tuesday).  We got mani/pedis and went shopping.  Got her a few new outfits so she'd feel like a million bucks at school that week.  It didn't 'fix' everything, and she continued to have ups and downs for awhile, but it really did seem to get her on the road to recovery.  He was her first love and I don't know if she will ever be truly over him (she still refuses to speak to him and it's been a year), but she has moved on and is currently having an argument with her new boyfriend over whether she should go to a party without him this weekend.  Ah, teen drama!
