We are from out of this country and for me and my kids its the first time in USA. My girl has been going to school for the last 1 month and she hasn't been able to make any friends even though she is an extrovert , very communicative and pleasant. She plays all by herself during recess everyday and gets upset that no one wants to be friends with her even when they are all making friends with other new kids. Am not able to understand how to tackle this situation. I tell her that things will take time since her accent and behaviour may appear as strange to other kids. She is holding on pretty strong at times but the time when she gives up all hope and sulks is when my heart weakens. I dont want my happy child to blame herself for not having friends. Can anyone please tell me if you have any ideas on what to do?
