Or if you are wondering how you ended up in the middle of a conflict with no idea how to help either side.
This book was very revealing to me.
This is a MUST READ for EVERY parent of daughters AGES 11 - 18 and school teachers of those ages. Odd Girl Out gave me insights into my students’ behavior when I was teaching middle school.
Unlike boys who may settle their differences physically and then move on, girls who bully leave EMOTIONAL SCARS which can follow the bully and especially the victim into adulthood.
Bully may be the wrong term here, since often it is more subtle, i.e. a group of friends suddenly leaving one from there group suddenly without EXPLANATION, out of their activities - sitting together at lunch.
It is a reality our girls face - it is hard to address, we have to support and advocate for them.
When is the last time ANY 21 yr old actually THANKED a parent for something they did back when they were growing up?
READ IT READ IT READ IT!!!
I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!!

The final chapter has some suggestions on how to help parent your child through these situations. There are also quotes from children about what they find helpful from their parents.
My library copy went back today but I just had to buy another to re-read.
