Since she's in a very small class at a small private school, this is magnified because there aren't that many other kids to hang with and one of these two (the boy), being very popular and sort of a male "Queen Bee", if you will, has successfully poisoned quite a few other kids against her.
She basically can't wait for the school year to end and is now dragging herself to school each day. This is from beginning the year feeling like she had the world by a string and was, for the first time, friends with everyone in the class, to now saying that everyone hates her and she can't stand to go to school.
Fortunately, she got into the high school she applied to and is excited about that (and its a much bigger school, thank God!) and she also has a great summer camp lined up that she will be attending for the 3rd summer in a row, so has quite a few friends there. I'm just telling her to "hang in there until summer" and it will be the beginning of a whole new phase in her life. I don't want to get down deep in the details w/her, but I have to admit that I feel a lot of tension each day when I pick her up before I hear how her day was.
Have any of your kids been through this? Thanks for *listening*.
