I am worried for my children….
They have moved schools this year, as I’m pretty sure I’ve said before.
My daughter at first said she had many friends and a best friend, now seems to have few, if any, and is having issues with one particular girl who says something new and mean and hurtful to her every day….
My son, who seemed to have established a good group of friends, was once invited to his ‘best’ friends house, but not again, and yesterday came home saying he was ‘a loser’ – this is not how he speaks, this is not even in his vocabulary – I asked him why – at first it was because he wasn’t good at hockey, then it was because people were ganging up on him at downball…no straight story and his “I’m making this up as I go” face.
So what do I do? At their old school I would have talked to the teachers about it and they would have looked after my children (while they weren’t strong in academics they did try to make sure everyone was relatively happy), but I’ve written to my daughters teacher and she hasn’t responded…I’m on new ground here in the public school system, so any advice would be welcome.
I want my babies to be happy, not crying every night…
Any other Mums out there – Help! – Please?
