It is seen that children who have studied in one school from LKG to upper grade like ur daughter has been given admission in another school in grade 8,in the new school she must be feeling out of place or alien world too.Secondly she must be missing her friends,thirdly she must be facing difficulty in teachings of the new teachers,last but not the least some bulling of the new joiner also plays a vital role,if it is co-edu school see that part too.Some time even the harmonal changes and teenage issues also bothers them along with surrounding atmosphere(at this most of them get concer'd about their physical appearance ). Kindly first u sit with her and have a word on all angles than go for a counsellor.
Being a children & Adult counsellor,I replayed
God bless And take care
it is very common for teens to have this kind of behaviour. just be patient, listen to her and when she is in good mood, then try to talk to her. she is growing, they have so many things in their mind but dont know how to express.
i feel that we should observe them, be patient with them, and try to talk WHEN APPROPRIATE.
Also teens are constantly under peer pressure specially in new school, try to meet her teachers, try to find about her friends and their family background, then try to anayse if she is undergoing any kind of inferiority complex? everything with teens take time but i feel we have to be patient. TALKING with them on their personal matters might help.
daughter might simply be going through a rebellious phase. Also, like the
others have suggested, she may not have adjusted well to the new school / her
new grp of friends may be influencing her. Sit down and talk to her. Go out
for a day with your daughter, have wholesome fun and then talk about it. Good
Try to seek the positive side of ur child, and talk only about it to them, they will automatically get withdrawn from their negative/ rude thoughts, as parent we try to correct them very often, seeing only their negatives, but, we must ignore their negatives, and praise them for the good side of their character, This may work...
