My 11-year old daughter always chooses "Queen Bees" and "Mean Girls" as friends even when they tease her, reject her, humiliate her - she will always reseek their friendship. I've witnessed her ignore or reject the attempts of nicer, quieter, and sometimes "nerdy" girls to befriend her. It seems she would rather be miserable and following some "mean girl" around. She is starting a new school next year and I would welcome advise on how to get across to her that she should use this opportunity to make some nicer, more positive friends. I was a "nerd" in school, and hung out with other "nerds" and though my daughter thinks to be a "nerd" is terrible, I can tell I was much happier in school than she seems to ever be?
