I'm not sure how to help my daughter or how to approach her about this topic because I don't wanna seem like I'm prying in her life. She is 17 and a junior in HS and was a varsity cheerleader up until this year she is a member of student council and alway pretty popular. She had a spat with friends over where to eat at homecoming (really one in particular) now her circle of friends do not include her in anything because that one friend will alway be around. They are always like, "Oh, well we didn't think you'd wanna go because Jane will there." So she just stopped asking to go places with them even though they have no issue with her. These are friends she has had from grade school. Now that they can drive, they sort make decisions all their own, as they should. She literally goes from home to school and from school to home or work, that's it. She never asked to go out, she's never dated or shown interest in dating. When I tried to talk to her friend about the homecoming issue, I was accused by girls mom of harassing her and she threatened to call the police if I talked to her again. All I said was that they need to work the issue out and how upset my daughter was. Now maybe I should not have talked to the girl directly but it's not like she's 8 or 10, she's 16! I just want my daughter to have friends again and have a normal HS social life and not be at home 24/7 when she is not at work. She has a car and money to go places, she just won't! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
