I seem to be posting about my daughter a lot. She started a new school last year and is in 8th now. The school is relatively small, about 120 in her grade, but she came from a school with 6 girls in her class. That is 6 in the entire grade out of 18 total kids. Last year she had a lot of troubles at home and school. She is seeing a psychologist regularly now and it seems to be helping a lot. However, tonight she showed us something she wrote on her computer about feeling left out, kids making fun of her, not being accepted or having friends. Heartbreaking! She says kids post on Facebook what a fun time they had together and she is never invited. I know of two parties she was excluded from and I've had decent relationships with the parents of those kids at school events. One girl had just attended my daughter's party the weekend before and didn't invite her She is a bit of a tomboy but really tries...she just isn't accepted. She doesn't do any clubs...says she doesn't want to be friends with dweebs, only popular kids. The sports occur during the school day so that doesn't really expose her to kids outside of the regular setting. Help!
