My youngest is in 6th gr. She has been at the same school since Kindergarten & it goes thru 8th grade. Many of her friends have been her friends since the beginning. But things are changing this year. Many of them are becoming back-stabbing mean girls. It seems like she is running out of friends & it makes me sad for her. She plays softball, but there are no other clubs or sports teams for her at this level. (budget cuts) We can't afford a "Y" membership.
We've talked about how some friendships fade or change over time & that some won't last, thru no fault of her own. She's been taking it in stride, but if she finds out one of her so-called friends recently back-stabbed her way into getting her (my dau) excluded from a recent B-day party, it could really hurt her feelings.
I'd appreciate any suggestions, esp. if you've been thru this. She's just such a sweetie & doesn't deserve to be at the receiving end of this kind of behavior.
