Not sure what to do about this...my freshman dd came to me very upset last night...apparently her friend from middle school has threatened to commit suicide, says there's no hope for her and no one can help her. a few days ago, my dd said this girl was crying at school and then disappeared (went home? not sure).
I know the kid, she's been on our sports teams and I know the parents who seem very conscientious so I don't know why she can't talk to them (this is what she's told my dd). She's been a guest in my home, always seemed like a cheerful kid. Now that I think of it, there was a reserved side to her which I chalked up to shyness.
My dd was crying, very upset that she can't 'help her friend'. She showed me the texts and they do seem like more than typical teenage drama...problem is, I don't want to call the mom because the problem might be a home situation. My dd doesn't know, says it's so bad her friend won't tell her...WwYD?
