The Struggle Continues

So after spending last night listening to my 8th grade daughter tell me she just can't take the mean kids at school any longer, and that she wanted to spend the rest of the school year learning from home, I have just returned from long conversations, most tear filled, with the school counselor and Vice Principal.  I'm exhausted.

I am very happy that the Vice Principal was so receptive and incredibly supportive.  The counselor offered great support along with a few "light bulb" moments.  I had no intention of having my own little therapy session but that's what happened.  Nice.  (He shared that he also works as a Mental Health Therapist.)

I'm going back around lunch time to meet with her teachers and hear what insight they have on this groups situation.  My 8th grade daughters class mates have been pretty rough since 4th grade.  Every year has been a struggle.  (Thank goodness my 5th grade daughters group is better - by comparison just about every class is better!)

I can't let the harsh words and actions of a small group of kids push away someone who deserves to be there.

Well see how this goes.
