My daughter turns 14 in a week or so and if im completely honest she has a miserable existence.
The one thing she wants i cant give her A real friend or even better friends!
Her disabilities have meant major learning delays and social problems. She is now in her second year of high school and i think this going to be our worst year to date. We fight (tantrums) every morning to force her to go and every afternoon is filled with stories of bulling and self loathing. Weekends are when she gets upset that she has no friends.
So please any suggestions on where she could meet other teenagers or preteens I would really appreciate it.
