We moved in January and our daughter goes to a new school now. For the first month or so she loved it. She liked her teacher, principal, kids and etc. She has one or two friends but only one that she has become very close to. Problem is now she comes home at least once a week saying kids are mean to her and tell her One friend not to be friends with her. We've talked about bullying several times with our daughter and even talked to the counselor. She still is having issues with kids bullying her to the point that our daughter is now acting depressed about it and I found a note that she wrote saying she wished she was never born. Besides talking to school officials and comforting our daughter I don't know what else to do. If it continues and nothing is done to stop it what should I do?

Also we've talked about her being in gymnastics if she has good grades at end of school. She doesn't like sports and we don't have the money to put her in other programs. Gymnastics was cheaper and its year round.

We moved to be closer to work..not because of school issues. She didn't have these issues until a month after going to the new school. We've told her to go to teachers, principal and counselors anytime she has issues with other kids. She is afraid to "tattle" on them in fear of making it worse. That's why in going to talk to the principal and counselor myself. But I just don't know if it will stop. I guess in panicking because the bullying is making her feel like shed rather be dead than deal with it. I've coached her at least 10 times in the last few weeks about how to handle bullies. I tell her to ignore it...or go to the principal and counselor. She wont take my advice though.

is there a point talking to the kids with teacher may be? To find out the reason for such treatment? Changing schools is not a solution - running away never is. Is your daughter interested in anything? has a hobby? Something that she can share with like-minded kids? May be she can join a club or activity of some sort. Kids are cruel creatures but their attentions span is not great. They might not even remember what they did and why once your daughter settles in the school. Plus, never forget the jealousy and envy aspect... Stay strong
