I have a ten year old cousin that refuses to go to school. She says nothing bad is going on there but her reactions say otherwise. Also, I have heard though the grapevine that there's a group of girls that call her 'disgusting' and tell her 'not to come near them or speak with them'. Fourth graders are saying this!
So I was wondering, what can I do (as a cousin that is a decade older) to help her out? Is there anything I should tell her, teach her, or give her? Especially since Christmas is coming up, is there something that could make her feel braver or boost her confidence that I could give her?
