Ok my 14 year old daughter really wants to switch schools. She's been saying this for more then a few months but now everyday it's all she talks about . She tells me the girls are rude and mean to her except for about 4 girls. She says she isn't being bullied but these girls are just mean. My daughters whole 8th grade have a reputation for being the meanest girls . I don't want her to think she can run from troubles or run when something go her way . That's why I'm just not sure what to do. WWYD

 Get her out of there! It's not running away, it's going somewhere better.

Does she have friends ? is the school she is attending a good school ? Have you spoken with guidance ?  The new school may be worse . I don't think I would unless her safety was in jeopardy.

There's a difference between running from your troubles and knowing which situations to walk away from. My parents allowed me to switch schools for sixth grade after begging since the beginning of fourth. It's the best thing they ever did for me. I had a fresh start and a new outlook.

Honestly with as many kids that start cutting, commit suicide, etc. I'd let her switch b/c I'd worry it's worse than she says and she didn't want me to know.

If my child was having a hard time at school I would definitely consider it because I would want him to be able to go to school and focus on the school work rather then dealing with mean kids.

That's what I told her , I wanted her to finish out this year. It's only 3 or 4 girls who are being rude to her . I told her that not everyone will get along all the time .

Let her switch, i begged my parents to let me switch from 5th grade all the way up to 11th grade they wouldnt let me and i was bullied all the time i started skipping school and my grades started to drop, it wasnt until the last semester of my senior year that they let me switch school almost immediately my grades and attendance were back to perfect l. I was also seriously behind and missing a ton of credits and with the school i went to i was able to get 5 credits in less than two months.
