odd girl out?

my daughter is having a terrible time in school this year.so far she seems to be flunking all her classes and i dont think its because she is not trying.she doesnt have many friends.and the ones she has seem to be sort of disfuctional.she is in girl scouts.and she just got over cheerleading witch she really liked ...but didnt make any friends though...i dont know what is wrong or going on with her and what to do about it...she seems depressed and i should add she is 10...im not seeing puberty anytime soon but as you know i could be wrong.

  • Yeah, all kids go through aquward stages at very different times. Though mild depression could have something to do with it. You don't have to be a certain age to have a chemical imbalance. Maybe try a councelor?

  • Sit her down and ask her what's going on. Tell her that you love her and that she can always talk to you no matter what. You can't fight her battles for her and she is starting to develop a school life that you won't always know all the details of. All you can do is show her that you care, that you noticed that she is going through something, and be there for her when she does want to talk.

  • My daughter is only 6 but i have an 11 year old boy.When he is distant,i try to talk to him,find out whats going on. I think you should try to pick up on some of her behavior,maybe the girls from chearleading make fun of girl scouts and maybe she is torn between the two.Girls can be very,very viscious.Worse than boys.But you should intervene now before it tuns into something serious.
