I am / and was an only child.. i have my 4th baby on the way! I have a 18 yr. Old! 13yr. Old and 8yr. Old and I'm due on May 1st . I just want you to know that i feal as if you yourself have NOTHING TO DO WITH your child at this age making or keeping friends! All you can do is ask your child what she is looking for in a friend and keep open and honest communication with your child about everything going on in her life. Friends WILL COME and go forever! And trust me they Will come! She's the one that has to spend time with them etc. So, not much you can do besides be a good ear and be ready to give her some good advive.... good luck to you and your child. One other huge thing i must add is that nowadays kid's are sooo so involved in electronics and social media that they all kinda stopped hanging out in real life if ya know what i mean, sad but True.
