outcast

My daughter is an outcast because she won't play the same games the other girls do.....makeup, singing.  She would rather live in nature and be outside.  I want her to fit in but I'm not sure how to help her.


This discussion is related to 13 year old girl feels like outcast.

How old is your daughter?  My son who is 5 has many girl playmates.  He is a rough and tumble boy who loves sports of all sorts, running around at parks, playing tag, etc.

Girls just join in.  If she is in a school with boys and girls, encourage her to befriend some of the boys too.  

I also think that every child is unique and individual.  There have to be other girls that like what she likes.  If she is young, she could get her own game of tag going and if she is older, get her on some sports teams.
Good luck.

Just because she doesn't like makeup doesn't mean she can't fit in. I would like to say let her be her self and there are others like her to play with, but I know how school can be to outcast kids, very cruel. I agree with other poster get her into sports, girlscouts(if she is not to old) she should fit in there if she likes nature and outside. What about softball, soccer, or tennis.

Is she fine with being the outcast, if so there you shouldn't worry, if not then go into more detail about what is going with her at school or home.
