Welcome to the ReachOut forums @Aariesrose 

That sounds really worrying re: your daughter's friendship issues - I'm really sorry to hear she's going through that. 

Has she been able to tell you what's happening and how she's feeling?

@Aariesrose that sounds really hard for both of you. Can I ask how you found out about the problems she's having with her friendships?
I often find it difficult with my teenagers when they're having struggles and they don't want me to get involved - it's not easy as a parent when you just want to do whatever you can to help and protect them. 

 

Is there anyone else your daughter feels comfortable talking to? Do you think she would consider talking to someone like a counsellor or maybe kids helpline?

Re: teenger's stress

I found she didn't use her mobile frequently  like before.

Thank you for your reply.

I tried to talk to her today , and seems she is ok now. 

I let my husband talk to her and found out she was hurt by her friend. The reason she doesn't want to tell me because I found out the friend who hurt my daughter is a problem girl who I am not agree they are become close friend. my daughter feels not comfortable to tell me

he is more softer than me

So I am assuming my attitude sometimes is not good

But thank you for your kind attention.

Hope everything goes well

Re: teenger's stress

Hi @Aariesrose, thanks for sharing. It is great to hear that your daughter is feeling ok and has opened up about what has been happening for her. Fights with friends can be really tough for teenagers, who might feel as though their world has been shattered. How are you feeling now that she has shared that with you?

You can talk to your child in friendly way and ask him what's the problem.
