I can relate to the people who have only children who want siblings. My daughter finally stopped praying for a sibbling--she is nine. We stuggle with friend issues. My daughter is extreemly sensitive and often bottles her feelings it up inside. There are two girls my daughters age in the neighborhood. She use to play with them until it got to be a competetion of who was going to play together. My daughter became the odd one out. The two girls go to the home school while my daughter is choice enrolled in a school that is close to our home. The two girls are home when we get home and our house is between their houses...We can't avoid them. These girls will jump and wave to get my daughter's attention and then run in the house and close the door behind them, After noticing their cruel game I saw my daughter --she was so upset and rightfully so. These children have no adult supervison-- only an older sibling (teenager) who is supposed to be "watching" them. She has been suspended from middle school for punching a girl. What a great role model. I would love to move out of this neighborhood --however our finances won't allow it. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would like to have her meet some other kids close to our house but haven't been able to meet anyone---none at the park, can't aford to enroll in activities at our local rec. center and the girl scout troop was looking for younger girls and didn't seem to welcome older girls. I am not very social myself but wil do anything to hellp my daughter.
