In middle school my oldest daughter experienced betrayal from best friends both in 7th and 8th grade.

kimmybabe, I love that your daughter gave "The Butchman" a chance even though he was quirky.

Did she ever have time to sleep in there?

Kids are growing and changing all the time. My sons and daughter have only one friend each that has lasted more than one year. This is mostly because of proximity and parents' friendships allowing for more time. With cell phones and texting they now make there own plans and then let me know what they are... well also ask if it's ok...

Thanks,

Rainbow

Thanks for your post. All the responses have been helpful and are putting things in perspective. My daughter is feeling a lot more upbeat the past couple of days. Several friends in other groups have told her they'd like to have lunch with her at school and she's been invited to go to Homecoming with a group of kids that's different than her usual crowd. It looks like she's been reaching out more than I realized. Her sports season started and the team is together 4 hours a day which I'm sure has helped.
