Re: Re: my 9 year old has no friends

Thank you for ur reply. WE live in a very small town where there are not many kids. WE do go for walks and do different things to help her lose the weight but so far nothing is helping. She is very willing to try different things to lose the weight which is heart breaking because she is only 9 and she shouldn't have to worry about stuff like that. I am worried that she will have a nervous breakdown yet. I mean how much can one girl take? I have been to the school several times about these bullies I have talked to the parents of these girls also. But it is always the same result. THese parents think that just because my daughter is bigger than their kids that what my daughter is telling us is crap. That is very frustrating for me as a parent.

Re: my 9 year old has no friends

why not speak to the teacher and see who she sits next to at school and invite them round for tea. if thay get on well try taking them both to burgerking. i know it feels like you are trying to buy a friend but wouldn't be nice to see your dayghter with a friend . i had a similar problem with my son he was always small but when he had a friend over he could really be himself we had one friend to start and then went for two and in the summer we had a garden party for him and 5 friends he relly enjoyed this and cos he was on homeground with me and dad watching he stuck up for himsekf if the friends started to mock hope this helps
