My 5th grade daughter is fearing growing up. She wants to stay a kid, and has a hard time making friends since others her age want to go in the other direction. She is a bit socially awkward, and misses some fairly obvious social cues offered by others at times. Recently she started struggling in school. She feels this year the fun has left school and now it's simply too much work. On a recent test she didn't even answer the essay, she sat there and cried. She was allowed to bring it home this weekend, but whenever she looks at it she cries. She says it's just to much to organize an answer. I recently started her in play therapy (about 8 sessions now), but I see no change from that. HELP!!!
