I have a 12 year old daughter that just entered a new school as she entered Middle school. She had one really good friend and they had a fall out, and then she did't make the Volley Ball team. She is very social, but doesn't have any really close friends right now. She has met a few new ones and done a few things with them, but then she asks everyone for a sleepover, and each time they say no, she asks someone else. Then she keeps getting rejected. She's nice, pretty cool, cute and can be funny, so I can't figure it out. Is she acting needy, or are the kids just being catty?

These are new friends. Do their parents even know you? Does she even know these girls well enough to ask them for a sleepover? Let's face it, getting to know someone new takes time. If your daughter is meeting them and only hanging out with them a few times then asking them for a sleepover, that's kind of strange, don't you think? She's pushing to hard. She just needs to take things more slowly. She does appear to be acting needy. I can't see anything catty in saying no to a sleepover at the home of someone you just met and have no idea who the parents are.
