  2. Tween/Teen My dd used to be very good friends with this girl but in 5th grade they drifted apart. No big deal but now that they're in middle school the girl is being very nasty and mean not...(more) 14 hr 27 min ago (11 replies)
    only to my dd but several others. According to my dd it sounds like the girl is trying to get in with the 'mean popular girls' in school. I'm pretty sure the mom is aware of it (according to others) but I don't talk to her as much as I used to. Unfortunately my younger dd is best friends with the younger sister of this girl and I have to say I really wish she wasn't. I've been pulling back my friendship from this mom for a while now and wish my younger one would do the same. I just feel that if this mom is allowing her older dd to act this way (and encouraging it) I'm afraid if she starts encouraging her younger one to be the same, it's only going to hurt my younger dd. The older girls are in 6th and the younger ones are in 4th. WWYD?

        dd is isolated as she is always hanging out with the 'mean girls' and looking down and talking about anyone who is not part of their crowd. I overheard my dd and her friend talking about them the other day how my dd feels sad that this girl is really mean now and won't even say hello or acknowledge her anymore.
