We moved in Aug 2012 changing my daughters school... She hates it here! New school year so no mid transfers and we bought a house. No more appartment living. She's always kinda struggled in school but we never are down on her as long as she tries. In the last couple of weeks I'm getting calls that she's not dressing for p.e, 2 lunch detentions, and after school detention for getting cought ditching and an on campus suspension for messing around in class.. She's now grounded but has the I don't care addutude. WHAT DO I DO? I feel bad she's unhappy but education is far more important!

How about tutors if she is struggling in school. Consequences for ditching school.

 She needs to be in a school activity, it will help her to make friends. We moved in June 2011,so ds had to change schools, he swore he hated it, hated us,and would never make friends. Well, he did make a few friends the first year. Then this year he is on the football team,he has made a ton of friends on and off the team. So, try to get her invovled in a group at school or church.

This!  Extracurriculars/clubs/sports, she needs to get involved, then she will find friends.

For all these 'offences' I would be shadowing her butt around school. My DD did the same thing regarding not getting changed for PE; so whatever day she had PE for 2 weeks I made her wear her PE clothes and refused to allow her to borrow or take other clothes to school. She learnt that lesson - as for cutting - my DD knew that if I ever caught her cutting I would bring my twins and follow her butt around school all day. Maybe threaten her with you following her everywhere. Another suggestion is; ask whatever teacher she has before lunch to escort her to the office for lunch seeing as she can't be trusted in a cafeteria
