I worry my daugh­ter will iso­late her­self in school

Irish Independent - Health & Living - - PARENTING -

?MY 12-year-old daugh­ter just started sec­ondary school. She seems to have with­drawn from the group of friends that she had, and over the sum­mer she spent more and more time on her iPad in her room. Her pre­vi­ous best friend got close to an­other girl, and now my daugh­ter doesn’t see ei­ther of them. If I bring this up, she just says she doesn’t care. But she doesn’t seem mo­ti­vated to be with any friends now. I am re­ally wor­ried that, with this at­ti­tude, she’ll iso­late her­self in sec­ondary school. Any sug­ges­tions?
