We have been living here in Florida for the past 6 months. It has been quite the adjustment for me and my 2 daughters. My youngest is attending middle school and has made poor choices in her actions and friends. In the past month she has been suspended from school for cutting class, 3 times. She is failing her classes does not listen to the teachers and has become a liar. I love her dearly, I know living in a new state is hard because everything and everyone she ones is not around. I've had to leave work because of her behavior. But I really feel that right its the only option to get her focused and away from the friends she's made.Answer Question

Before pulling her out of school, I would look into the deeper issue of why she is doing these things.

What a hard age your daughter is at. Middle school the kids need more parents time and attention. They don't know how to act or who they are (for the most part). Homeschooling is not easy. I tried it many years ago with my youngest son (hes now 22). I was not self disciplined and i was too easy. If you have self discipline, do not procrastinate, it could be better than public schools. If you do try it, have your daughter enroll in an after school sport or some class so she will not lose her social skills. Good luck, momma!
