I just realized that I really need help for my 16 years old daugther, we just moved in 2 years ago, and she's been always been complaining about been treated bad by friends, she looks like a normal kid, but she says other friends say she's weird., and she always feels left out.
She's been educated well, for me she's a beautiful and nice person, I don't understand teenager are so cruel with others. I don't know what to do??

Tell her she needs to stand up for herself. If they try to tell her she's weird she should tell them, I'm not weird, she should be upfront with her 'friends' if she thinks they're treating her badly.

I would try to sign her up for extracurricular activites where maybe there are other kids her age. She could take martial arts, or maybe there's a drama club or teen book club, even girl guides has that age group. Tell her to join some clubs at school so she can be a part of the group there and possibly meet other teens and develop interests with them. There are usually youth groups in most areas, see if you can bring her to a youth group to hang around where other teens are.

Try to get her to join other activities with kids her age and to stand up for herself if she's being treated badly.

I was treated the same why in school. Tell her that if her friends are treating her that why,
they aren't her friends. If they were really her friends,they'd accept her for the why she is.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
