After reading a few differnt posts on here about other tweens and friends and what rules you have for when your tween goes off with friends or meets up with them somewhere. Or having friends over, I'm starting to think my tween daughter (11) is very differnt from other tweens.
She doesn't go hang out with her friends, doesn't go off to play with friends. Doesn't ask to go to the mall or movies with her friends. She doesn't go to friends houses to hang-out, play or spend the night. She doesn't have friends over here often ( we usally suggest it).
I'm pretty sure she has friends, she always talks about them during the school year. And when we're out and about we often runs into someone she knows from school and they always say "hi" and talk for a bit. She's in girl scouts and gets along with all the girls in her troop.
In our old apartment there was a family with 3 boys (one about her age) that lived across the hall from us that she would sometimes play with and we still meet up with them at a local park to play once a week.
But should I be worried that she doesn't seem all that intrested in getting together with friends?
I did sign here up for an event for the kids entering 6th grade this fall, later in Aug. It will be a fun night of games and team building activites for her and other kids in her 6th grade class. So she'll get to know them.
Should I worrie or just let it go? Is she the only one like this?
