My daughter is in high school and she's been pretty close two these two other girls for the last year. however, recently they have began spending way more time with a girl who excludes her. like when the four of them are eating lunch, she invites my daughters friends to

she asked me for advice yeaterday, and she doesn't know whether she wants to confront the girl who has been trying to exclude her, go to the girls she was friends with, or move on and stop spending time with them, which she doesn't want t do.

i told her to talk to her friends,but its making her nervous..

HS is a transition. Sometimes it is time for new friends. Friends move on and some stay. Each year in hs brings on new friends and transitions.

I'd say move on. I changed friend groups from jr. high to high school too.

Move on.    If her 'friends' are willing to drop her like a hot potato to join another girl......they don't sound  like people she would want to be friends with.

I don't think she should give up so quickly on her two friends.  She should talk to them both individually and tell them how she feels, maybe they just didn't realize.  If nothing changes after she has explained it to them then they just don't care and she can look to make new friends

I think she should at least discuss it with the two girls that she has been friends with. If the friends decide they are going to follow the girl who is excluding her then she should move on and find new friends.

I think she should try to bring it up with them one more time. If it goes negatively, then she does not need them as friends. HS is a time of transition and new friends; there are plenty of other people out there she can make friends with.
