Hey @Elica1016, moving towns is always going to be difficult, and I can really understand why you'd be feeling so uncomfortable and anxious about your daughter making friends and feeling happy or content in her surroundings. I think it's not a bad idea for her to keep seeing her old friends, but it might also be a good idea to encourage her to make new friends. Maybe it could be a good idea to check in with her and ask if there is any extracurricular activities that she's interested in, or maybe you could take a look and see if there are any youth community programs in your area? This might not just help distract her and provide her a place to make friends, but it will also be something to anchor her to her new town.
Know the feeling when we relocated with my teenagers to another city as well because of my business. It is difficult for all of us not just the teens… New life, friends, new everything… what we did for bonding, try running this test teenagers time quiz and I trust will help answer a lot of questions. Time heals everything…
