Hi Mel , I feel your concern and worry !! Its a mothers pain to see your child go though this. But on a another note
this can also happen to Adults too !! .The best support you can give your daughter is to.... every new day remind her that
she is a wonderful ,loving member of the community and that you and the family love her . You have to explain to her that
not every one in the community will be as nice or friendly as her. For one reason or another its sad to say that people
are sometimes nasty ,un-friendly and selfish towards each other and she will need to look beyond that and not take it to
heart.Have a look on google for social stories about friendships for children and how to cope dealing with issue like your
post. Maybe get her to take up an new hobby or join new sport that builds on social groups (like roller skating) painting classes.
Bullying is a major problem for schools and i don't think they know how to deal with this serious issue we have all around the states.
Fear feeds them and they love to put that onto the child. Once your daughter finds new friends (maybe outside the school ) she will build
on that bond and will give her the skills to deal with them at school. Any issues with physical contact (pushing , hitting) has to be
written down and needs attention to the school. Put anything in writing so they are aware of the situation ,so they can keep an eye on it.
Hope this helps .... just let her know you are their for her and talk, talk talk keep the communication open is the best.
Good luck take care Skategirl08
