My 8 year old daughter is in 2nd grade. They have no special education classes at her new school, so she has to be in a regular class. The kids are making fun of her for being "different". They are telling her she's stupid, slow, and she should kill herself. She came home and asked me what it means to kill yourself? I asked her where she heard it from and she said her classmates are telling her she should do it. I had a meeting with the teacher, principal & had to call the superindant and things still haven't changed. She does not want to go to school and I haven't been able to send her for the last couple of days because of how upset she's been. This is a new school and I'm planning on homeschooling next year, but I don't know what to do for the remainder of the school year. The school officials said they can't "make" anyone be her friend...I'M SO LOST AND MY HEART IS BREAKING FOR HER!! PLEASE HELP!!!
