my dd 13 yr old is in th grade. Let me start off by saying she is the sweetest, kindest friend anyone could ask for. She would do anything for her friends yet is getting stepped all over. There are two groups of girls that are now sort of combinding together. Girls that didnt hang out together are now doing that and the lunch table changes daily. I will start by saying PLEASE DONT TELL ME TO TELL HER TO FIND NEW FRIENDS THAT IS NOT AN OPTION ! The problem is that my daughter is basically too nice and is being pushed around by the girls - what I mean is that she very rarely gets invited to do things unless she makes the initial plans, she tried to invite a bunch of them to this event this weekend, and almost all of them said they couldnt, yet she found out a few went to it last night and didnt think to invite her knowing she was trying to plan the same thing, SHe thinks they are all her best friends, yet with all these stupid online websites (instagram,ask.fm etc...) Im seeing that they dont think of her that way. I was told by a friend to look online at this website (ask.fm) and I would see that when the girls were asked who are your besties my daughter was not on that list. Yet in person they tell her ohhhh we are best friends. My poor DD has no idea and I dont know what to do. I know that 7th grade is a horrible year of Middle school and it will get better but i feel so bad for her. She is very active outside of school doing this (sports, babysitting etcc.. with these girls and many others)
She has confronted them before about excluding her and telling them how she feels, yet they become defensive and turn it around to almost make it look like its my daughter and say its no big deal. I want to go talk to the GC at school and do something about this. Has anyone been in this situation before.
