DEAR DEIDRE: MY two best friends are excluding me on social media in lockdown.
I am at the same school as one of them. The other one moved in next door but is at a private school. We are all 13.
Earlier this year, I was with my friend from school when the other friend called round. They got on so well and were very similar, so I thought it would be great for us to do things together.
Now we are not allowed to see each other because of Covid-19. But they are FaceTiming privately and ignoring me. I have asked them if we could all catch up online. They say yes but it never happens.
FEW of us have ever been directly affected by such a serious crisis as the coronavirus pandemic.
It has thrown up a huge number of questions and my e-leaflet Coronavirus Crisis – Here’s Help signposts the support available when we are faced with problems we have never had to deal with before.
Email [email protected] or private message me on my Facebook page.
DEIDRE SAYS: You feel left out but no doubt they will have a row at some stage and each will want you on their side. Teenage friendships can be difficult, so it is better to have a bigger group of friends rather than just one or two.
This situation will not last for ever. Even while you are stuck at home, try reaching out through social media to other friends from school.
