Question for everyone out there. My step daughter is 11 years old in 6th grade. She is a bright girl. Seems to do pretty typical in social environments when her father and I are around. But I'm worried about her overall socialization. She has a few friends she talks about in school but when I ask if she wants to invite them over she finds something she doesn't like abs gives it the cold shoulder. Well my fear is this summer. She stays home alone now during the day while we are at work. She has decided not to do any sports this summer so what that means is she will get up, watch tv until her dad comes home and makes her lunch, then watch tv until we get home from work. Then she'll eat and maybe we'll play or go for a walk. Then her dad will put her to bed, with the tv on. It drives me crazy and I'm worried she's missing out on her childhood. Her dad doesn't seem to think it's a big deal and asks me to let it go, but I'm worried.. What do I do?
