My daughter just transfered from school and wants to go back to old school which I feelis not a great school. She comes home complaining every single day. What should I do should I transfer her twice in 7th grade I'm concerned and its bothering me a lot .

What were the reasons you transferred her to begin with? Was it not serving her academically? Was she being bullied? Did you move or is it an issue of convenience?

If you have legitimate reasons for taking her out, then I would think they would be important enough to stick with the plan. Most 13-year-olds would probably complain at having to adjust to a new school/peers at this age, so I'd expect that. I don't know how long she's been in the new place, but give her time to adjust, have her join some clubs/activities at school, or allow her to invite some friends over so that she can build the social relationships, which are the most important thing for kids this age.

Why do you think the other school is bad? Honestly, it doesn't matter how "good" or "bad" the school is if your daughter was doing well and learning there. Our kids go to an inner city school with a terrible reputation, and it's amazing.
