New School problems for 11 year old
I have 3 children ages 7,9, and 11. We transferred our children to a new smaller school this year. We thought that the smaller school size would be beneficial for our children. The 7 year old boy and 9 year old girl are adjusting well. Our 11 year old girl isn't doing as well. She has just 8 girls in her class and unfortunately many of them have strong personalities and have bullying tendencies. My daughter has made one friend, but other than that she feels left out allot. She cries at night and wants to go back to her old school. She is shy and sensitive and very sweet. I hate to see her so unhappy. I am ready to just transfer her back to her old school. Her father wants to wait and try and work through this. Her teacher and counselor at school have been supportive also. I have tended to coddle her in the past and try to help (maybe too much) because she has low self esteem. I just don't know what the right thing to do is. I love my girl so much and hate to see her unhappy.
Thanks for your help!
