Hi Everyone. My daughter turns 11 this upcoming week and has always wanted to "fit in". She tells her dad and I about all of the things her friends get to do and that she wants to be like them. We have tried explaining several times that she is wonderful and should be her own person and not follow others, etc, etc. But she still just wants to be like her friends.

Need some advice from those of you that have gone through this. How do you get your child to not be a follower and be her own person???
