My daughter is the youngest of 3 (2 older brothers). She had a hard time at school in year 1 (she is in Year 3 now) and some issues with friends. Last year she had a better year at school, however there are very few girls in her year and all with very strong personalilites (lots of top dogging!) She has had exclusion type bullying this year and has found it hard to settle with any real friends. Seems to get pushed out of situations at playtime. Appears to have had 'good' days at school, however I am concerned she is not telling me anything so I wont get upset. She has a very friendly outgoing personalility and this hardline meanness is quite upsetting to see in her.
