Father seeks help: "Our daughter is very smart scholastically, but she did something very immature by sending out graphic pictures of herself to some kids. She is in 10th grade. She goes to a small private school, and the friends she has had for the past 10 years will not talk to her, and now we know why. I'm struggling with the decision to take her out of the private school and send her to the local public school after she completes 10th grade. My feeling is that her old friends will never accept her again, and it will be impossible to get a new start at her current school.
Will changing schools in 11th grade negatively impact her? I'm thinking she could possibly start out fresh and gain new friends. Am I wrong in that thinking? Should we just have her ride out the last 2 years of high school where she is now?
I'd really appreciate input on this one."
