    my daughter started middle school.  Early in the year she was upset because her best friend from elementary school seemed to be pulling away and she didn't have anyone to sit with at lunch.   I told her that there were probably other kids feeling the same way and maybe she should look around and see if some of them wanted to sit with her.  Within a week she had accumulated a large group of kids who were feeling a little lost and they banded together.   She's started telling me stories about the mean girls in her class, usually ending in "and so I told them that it wasn't cool to act like that."
