Hi, All,

My 7 y.o. daughter is somewhat of an enigma. She seems to struggle
with wanting to have friends (like her extrovert, outgoing sister) but
is then very picky about any prospective "friend" she meets. This kid
is too "this" or that kid is too "that". So, she is in the shadow of
her older sister (9) but also recognizes that she is not like her in
personality. She feels she has to "pretend" (her words) to have fun
with the other kids when get together. I'm trying to figure this out.
She just can't seem to meet that special, just-right kid. She's happy
most of the time, really, but I think this is an issue that weighs on
her little mind.
