My daughter says the kids don't like her at her current school. She'll be switching schools at the end of December so maybe it won't be a problem anymore, but just in case it happens again at the new school I want to have some solutions. I've talked at great length with her about it, she says the girls are really mean to her and call her a tattle tell. I think this is mainly because a bunch of girls were really bullying her and it drew the attention of the school and they got in trouble. I think a large part of the problem is that she is very independent and when she doesn't want to play something she just opts to play by herself, so the kids have stopped asking her to play with them. She's extremely smart, silly, sweet and kind...she often stands up to older children or bullies that are picking on the younger children, which has made her a bit of an outcast in her grade. I've thought about having a slumber party after the move if the problem persists at the new school? Any suggestions or help would be really appreciated...its breaking my heart because she is so sad somedays.
