When I was a teenager, girls generally had a small group of really good friends and one friend that they referred to as their
“best friend”. I am concerned that my daughter doesn’t really have that close confidant. It seems that those she spends time with is dependent on those she is in classes with at the time so it doesn’t appear that she is developing any really close relationships. Since students are home for summer break, she is not really spending time with any friends. Have teen relationships changed since I was a child? Are my expectations unrealistic?
