    Hi. I am just a kid and I know this is an adult website but I don't care. Please help me none of my friends like me. I just saw one of them who shall not named to protect thier privacy (even they wouldnt for me) and he told me to shut up because he was watching youtube.  I am ten years old, have a super high I Q rating and am in the gifted and talented program at my school. Another is really fickle. One minute shes giving you money to buy cookies from the canteen the next all she does is step on my feet and complain about my tie. its part of the uniform at my school and she was wearing one just like mine! Please tell me how to make new friends and how to get rid of my old ones. The only friend who has stayed true to me is one who isnt currently at my school yet (he will be in two years). We're practicly brothers. Yes please exuse some of my spelling typing and holding back tears is hard. Should I bring this up with my BFF/Brother from another mother? Uncertainty is a big part of it too. I just don't know what to do.

    Dear Last Yazi~

    Welcome here where there is no such thing as 'just a kid'. People of all ages have problems, get hurt and have troubles with relationships.

    You sound as if you may be more mature than some of those you know, having a high IQ and being in the advanced stream probably means that there is some distance between yourself and some of the others.

    You also sound as if you know how a freind should behave - which means you will make a good friend when you meet someone you 'click' with.

    True friendship can be rare, and even the normal matters of politeness and consideration have to be leaned as one moves through life. If one of your acquaintances is rude, or another changeable, then they are still very much in the learning phase. That can be very upsetting for someone who is sensitive.

    I'm not sure you should actually try to get rid of those you know, have you considered telling them how you feel when they act up? If they disregard how you feel afterwards then might be the time to reconsider your relationships.

    As for finding new friends, schools always have fair number of people who feel isolated and not part of a group. Going out of your way to get to know some of these might be good.

    Now about talking to others, do you have a parent you might discuss the matter with, not necessarily so they have to do anything, just share how you feel, it can help.

    Please come back and talk some more, we are glad you came and are hoping things will improve
