I symapthize with anyone in this situation; i'm sure it's devastating to send your child off everyday into that kind of hostility. I don't have children of your daughter's age myself, but as a teacher i spent my student teaching period in a middle school (with eighth graders) and i must say i have never seen such animosity among children as i did then. Even in the highschool i teach at there is not nearly as much drama. You said your daughter is in eighth grade? well i hope highschool turns out to be a great fresh start for her, if it's any consolation, it usually gets better in highschool; kids find where they fit in, stick to their groups and tend to backoff of everyone else's business. i wish you and your family all the best.
