Your last sentance was the best advice at all. I don't know why 13 y/o girls are so mean to each other and full of drama, but they have been that way for at least the past 40 years, and likely a whole lot longer than that. Probably has something to do with not knowing how to deal with the horomomal swings of puberty. I just know that my daughter was full of all of it at that age too. Outgrew most of it by the time she was 17. Good thing too, coz if she hadn't, I probably would have had to strangle her! Lol she's 20 now and a mommy herself... nature has a way of handing out paybacks, but she has a son, so it won't be coming with this baby.

Well. . . not all girls ARE mean to each other.

My now-17yo DD had an awful time in 6th & 7th grades at lunchtime - sitting with groups of girls, some of whom would be horrid to others.

I totally agree ekmama. Most kids know about the language and themes in Mean Girls by jr high unless they are incredibly sheltered. Most often, parents who believe otherwise have their heads stuck in the sand.

She's sort gotten out of everything except show choir and she needs some other things to keep busy and out of the drama.
