Try to do more things with your daughter instead of involving her in her own activities. Take a long car ride to no where. Find things that you have in common. Take a trip for the weekend. Your daughter is at the right age now to plan what to do. Let her get involoved in the decision making. These times are precious. You will see then when she gets older it will still be cool to hang out with her mom. Good luck

Hey Team! Not sure if this topic has been discussed. I did a few searches and couldn't find anything so I decided to try and start a new one. I am in my 50's with a 12 year old girl. Our relationship is fine so far. But, my main concern is that she has very few friends. The school she attends is not in our area. And, according to her teachers and principal are very gossipy and more concerned with online social networking than school. The girls that she used to play with in the neighborhood are older and aren't around much. I have tried to engage her in organizations such as the YMCA, Girl Scouts, Chess and Art Club...but nothing. She takes golf lessons and did manage to a relationship with another girl who is a year younger than she is but this too has seemed to have an end. Most of my friends have moved away and/or have children much older than my child. I really am stuck! Any suggestions?
