  • I would make an appointment to see the teacher, there may be something going on at school that you are not aware of. A call to the mothers of the other girls will be useful, too.

  • Well...if the other Moms don't want to speak with you and the other girls don't want to speak to your daughter, I say it's time to find new friends. Talk to new people at school, get her involved in different activities in things that interest her like clubs, library functions, dance, sports, art, whatever she is interested in. At these new things she might find young ladies that have similar interests to her and she could begin to form new friendships. I agree with speaking with the teacher privately....just see what information she might have. If it is some sort of 'clique' thing she will definitely know about it if she has known these children for any length of time. I am not sure how old your daughter is, but some girls are just downright mean. Time to get new friends Mama. Anyone who won't return your calls and such isn't really your friend to begin with.

  • If she is shy dont switch because then EVERYONE will be new and it will intimidate her. Make her join a sport, music lessons, or another extracurricular activity. Even if she doesn't want to; it will introduce her to new people and give her confidence from learning a new sport or skill.
