Question No. 16: Why are 6th grade girls so mean and unfriendly?

What an excellent question. Let's help Bailey figure this one out.

Dear PLS,
Why are girls so mean in sixth grade? They have groups and think they're popular. I'm sick of it. Some advice?:)
Bailey, 11


I sigh at this question because I think it's really LARGE. Why are people mean at all - whatever their age? But I'll give it my best shot.

I think girls are sometimes mean because they don't feel very confident. Sixth grade is a little wobbly because it's the first year of middle school. Everyone is kind of terrified that they will have no friends, will never be popular, and/or never get that certain someone to notice them.

I don't like it one bit, but girls might feel more confidence by sticking together in tight, impossible-to-break-into groups. They feel they belong because they don't let others into the group. And sometimes being mean and pushing people away becomes something this group does as an activity. It stinks, but I think that's why it happens.

What can you do? Here's the good news: You can create your own "in crowd" and it can be a nicer kind. All you need is a good friend. Two or three makes it even more fun. And you guys can hang out together and try not to worry to much about anyone else. By being nice to people, in general, your group might become popular for all the right reasons.

Agree with me Pink Locker girls? Any other advice for dealing with 6th grade meanies?

Think pink!

Im going into seventh and so i get what you mean about mean girls. what i did was make friends with other people. people that were nice and we got to be super good friends. If making friends for you is hard, go to a teacher you trust and/or a school counselor and tell them how you feel. They will listen and try to help you.Hope this helps

There are so many mean girls at my school! The way I deal with them is to act bored and not offended because a bully's main goal is to make others feel bad so that they can feel better about themselves. Just remember that in a few years, the things that they think are so important now won't matter to them anymore! You'll always be the better person no matter what they say! :))

I know how you feel. Just ignore them because in my school, they do the same. Do not react because bullies look for a reaction. Just hang with your friends, don't react to bullies and you will be fine! :)

i am in the 6th grade and i know how it feels and its scary and you'd do anything to feel confident again and a way to do that is to be mean and hurt someone else and you have to think about their moods too because they will be starting puberty about now and their hormones will be all over the place and sometimes people just being near me is annoying so id take that out on people im soo not saying its right just you gotta think about it but if it gets really bad you should tell a older friend xx

Paige, here is some advice: (i just graduated from junior high, so i hav had quite alot of experience:)
1. Be yourself: Other people can tell if you're being you, or not. Never be anything less than yourself!
2. Don't let peer pressure get in the way: Alot of the "popular" girls can pressure you into doing something, but others who aren't necessarily "popular" can do it too. If someone tells you to do something, think before you do it, and dont forget that you have a mind of your own too!
3. Focus on the important things: Junior high is kinda in the middle... actually it IS in the middle. You have more responsibility (yay!) but you are still looked at as a whole student body (not yay), so if one person makes a bad choice, it affects the rest of the student body. But, dont let pressure or anyone but you get in the way of the important things: grades, healthy friendships, staying active, and (most importantly) your happiness!
4. Reach out to others: Junior High is a good time to find the REAL friends you want to hang out with. The people you want to surround yourself with effect you so greatly, and you want to go down a successful path in school right? DDont be shy (its ok if you do though), just try to overcome it for this situation: You kinda get to know some one in your class or your grade that you have never met before,and they are kind to others and you want to be friends with them, just be nice and go up to them first. Who knows... you might end up with a great friendship!
5.Avoid bullies, dont be a bystander, and dont partake in gossiping: gossiping is one of the most hurtful things in junior high, because word spreads really quickly. If there is spreading gossip about you, tell a trusted adult- its not fair to you, and its not even true! Dont be a bully, avoid bullies(they are just not the people you want to lead you down a certain path), and dont be a bystander! Being a bystander is just about as bad as being a bully! Keep a good reputation-reputations are important- and stick up for others and for what you know is right!!!
I hope these helped, and good luck in junior high!
Oh, and one last thing: dont be nervous, everyone will love you for you, and no one can take that away from you!!! :) BEST WISHES!!!!! <3

Bullies(popular people) make fun of people because it makes them
"cool" and they feel good about it. Not only girls do it, guys do it too. Also I noticed that bullies DON'T make fun of people that are in big
groups and people who defend themselves very strongly. The reason why is because those people will ALWAYS find a comeback for the bully/bullies. I'm not saying that you should come back with a rude comeback though. Last of all, the thing you should do when you're being bullied is, not react and ignore it. Remember NOT to give an offended reaction. If the bully keeps doing it again, and again, you should give the
a serious look and tell them to stop. If that doesn't work, go talk to an adult. However, I prefer going to the school counselor because he/she is meant for these kind of situations.

In my district, sixth graders are in elementary school and seventh grade is the first year of middle school. If this is how your school is, mabey they are mean because they feel older and think they get to boss people around because of it. Also, are ALL sixth grader mean? I'm going into sixth grade after this summer is over and I don't plan to be mean.

I totally know what you're going through because I got bullied in 6th grade. The thing about those "groups" that form because they all wear cool clothes or whatever, is that they always have drama and arguing at some point. Oh, and here's what to say if someone bullys you, Example: "You're fat" "If you think I'm fat, you sould see my MOM!". People never have anything to say to you after that becuase they're totally confused. Or even if someone just looks at you like, "eww" (i'm familiar with that one" say "If you think I'm ugly, you should see my MOM!"

I just finished 6th grade and going into 7th. Don't worry! just be yourself and you might not be with the populars, but you will make smart friends. when i entered 6th grade, since i skipped a grade, I was 10 years old. Amazing,, right. None of the populars girls wanted to hang out because they were too into talking and talking. Honestly. all the popular people do is talk. But, by the end of my sixth grade year (i was 11) , i had made 13 NEW friends!

Hey for those people going to Middle School (especially for Paige)..its really not scary becuase you're living the moment and you feel so grown up. Bullies,theres no bullies ..just mean people but you should never listen to them and stick with you're friends . They should defend you. And if you are new ..be totally friendly and have contact with everyone,just like me now i have 2 best buds and were like bread and pb&j!!! Another thing is being yourself ..be crazy ,spontaniouse, or weird..hahaha it doesnt mater really becuase middle school is like a whole new dimension with different species;0 haha...
so dont be scared and the reason that 6th graders are going to be mean is becuase there jerks,heartless,or jealous for dumb reasons. Talking to a counselor could be a big help or a close teacher who you like .I am on my way to 7th grade and I'm planning to be nice to new 6th graders:]

I was a sixth grader last year, so I know where you're coming from. I also moved right before school started, so I didn't know anyone! What I did was look around. The girls who wore high fashion clothing and pointed around were the snobby ones (you know when you see 'em). I looked around for some other, nicer people, and went and introduced myself. The "showoffs" (Fine. I fit in with that group) can be really snobby, but some are nice. Just be careful! :)

Okay,here's some advice:
1)Just ignore them,their just jealous!
2)Okay here's some imformation that I've never told anyone else.I have just recently finished sixth grade and theirs this girl that I thought was my friend,until she got into Plymouth High.suddenly,she started to get snobby by not inviting me to her 11th birthday party and i was upset seeing as we were serposed to be best friends and then she went of with a group of fith graders.
So what I'm trying to say is be careful who you trust and as far as bullies come don't show that you care and they should eventually stop.

I know its hard to belive but you don't have to belong to that one popular group. Most of the time they aren't really all that popular, they just want to feel better about who they are, so they make you feel worse.

I had the same problem in sixth grade. It may seem like the girls are mean and rude just because they dont like you but really they are insecure. They are worried about starting a new school and they think that by putting other people down that will bring themselves up. You just have to remember to ignore bullying and stay close to good friends that will always support you.
Hope this helps:)

my school is divided into 3 parts but in the same building. i am going to the 7th grade and i just want to give a few tips to those of you who are constantly being bullied.
1.ignore
2.don't move away. i'm sorry anonymous, but in my opinion, moving away will only motivate bullies. i don't mean to go against your opinion, it's just my philosophy that if you just stay rooted to the ground( not really ) and ignore that person, the bully will get disheartened and go away.
3. try to be as polite as possible. bullies usually become bullies because they've been treated badly by their peers, parents, guardians or people they look up to, so try to get the bully to tell you why they became bullies and reason with them. if they were bullied, what gives them the right to bully other people???violence is not the answer, neither is bullishness.you have to go out there, confront your fears and don't look back.
4.if the bully doesn't have a rough past and still bullies you, you have to be polite and sarcastic.example:"yes, i do know that this pair of shoes are really cheap, but excuse me, that shirt does look so outdated. where did you get it from??your grandmother's, i presume.*bully looks furious*. well, i have to be somewhere pronto, i'd best set off now. you have a good day, ok??and make sure you shop at the right place next time. toodles!!* walk away*. it may be okay to bully the bully once in a while but i do not recommend making a habit out of it, i really don't.

Hi, I was a sixth grader last year and I would like to speak up. I'm guessing you are in 5th grade, I know what your feeling. Sixth grade girls get what your feeling from the eighth grade girls and I hope they did not call you even close to the names that I was called. You probably have never even heard some of the words they have called me and my friends and you should be glad. As for us being mean to you, I would like to apolagize on the behalf of all sixth grade girls, " I know how it feels and I am deeply and completely sorry." I wish I could go apolagize to those other girls but, I moved out of state and I don't have a phone. You'll understand whenever you start, please don't hold it against us.

its sad to say that i was in one of those groups in 5th grade.the main girl was very nice to me, but she acted as if anyone that wasnt popular had some type of disease.she even acted mean to our group sometimes.she told us what to do, what to wear, and even what to eat for lunch.if we did something wrong, she would sneer and hold it against us.for example if i wore last years jeans she would say,"whats your problem are you trying to look like a nerd.i wouldnt be caught dead in those jeans."take it from me that it can be horrible for those girls in the group with the mean girl.try being nice to them.the reason they are so mean is because they are insecure.thats why i was mean last year.i felt as though i had to be mean so that people would like me.if they know that people like them they may become nicer to you.but no matter what, always know that they are not worth your worrying.

I understand what you mean, but for me it was mostly fifth grade! I think girls like this are not confident about themselves and have to bring others down to make themselves feel better. I really don't see what they get out of this! Also, they could be jealous of you! If these girls are calling you their friend, they aren't being a good friend. Hope I helped and don't let them boss you around!

im in 6th grade but not a meanie but there are lots of 6th grade girls in my class that think they are so popular and they even all have boyfriends and there only 11 i think its a little too early to have one. They all hang out with the 'boys'(the boys are the popular boys in my grade). I find it really annoying. they also have cell phones and they dont keep it in there bag they put it in there back pocket so you can see it a bit and they text during recess its so annoying. and they wear so much mascara and makeup.

My advice to you, and anyone else who has this problem is to try to forget about them. They are going to be mean, and when they realize they are bothering you , sometimes they won't stop because they find bugging you is funny, and that they are perfect, and super popular. Forget them, because they don't matter. And if they start bullying you, TELL SOMEONE you trust, like a teacher, parent, relative, guidance counsler or friend.

Yes, this almost always happens in schools! When I was in 5th grade, the pretty, skinny, tall 6th graders would come and tell me "Oh, erm, sorry, but erm, you see -giggle- you're not allowed to sit here." They would pull faces and giggle and point. And it got really annoying too. This is, I think, a society rule, I know, its mean and stupid. But I guess people do like it. They...think its cool to be mean because even when you were being REALLY mean to someone, you still got away with it. An people love getting away with things, cheating, its human. I remember when it was the time for me to go to 6th grade, I would fix up my hair so it was very noticeable, put on a teensy bit of mascara and even wore a tinted lip gloss. Of course, when it came to choosing seats I would choose the back with my friends and the seats near the cooler boys. These things happen, it can be different for everyone.

First off, there are a lot of true things adults say that are said so often that they seem sort of fake.
1. Bullies are insecure. It's true. I know bullies that confide in me or other people that they're insecure about not being as smart or something. It's really true. Remember that :)
2. Be yourself and they will respect you. It's true. Worked for me tons of times, I'm not even kidding. :)

Im a 6GG (SIX GRADE GIRL) and i think some of us are mean because we have hormones and mood swings and that makes it difficult for me to be in the best mood every day. But the mood swings eventually end. Just hang in there! :-)

Yeah, there is this girl named Jennifer and she has been bullying me since the first day of sixth grade. I don't know what her problem is but for some reason, she's always staring at me and one day, she said that she was going to punch me after school. And worse yet, she lives like six houses away from where i live. But i feel kind of bad for her because she never had a real friend. When school starts, should i try to ignore her for the things she said to me last year or should i just try to be her friend so that hopefully, we can work things out? can anyone please give me some edvice?

Well, Im in sixth grade in middle school so the reason why were mean and snobby is because we have to show the older girls were not little and were just like them and dont deserve to be picked on hope this helped :)

Hey Bailey! I know how you feel. I'm going into 8th grade, and I remember my first year of middle school. Girls in middle school are mean mostly because they believe that middle school is a fresh start, and they don't want anyone to be more popular than them. This is most definitely NOT the sole reason for this, but it's one possible reason. Most sixth grade girls who are like this think that being in middle school makes them a teenager (which I can assure you isn't that much fun). Therefore, they should act better than everyone else.
I don't know if there's really a specific way to stop that. Middle school girls will be middle school girls. But you can try to ignore them. When they're mean (it doesn't matter who they're mean to) stand up to them. They will most likely stop being so rude. Just make some other friends who aren't like that. You'll be okay. Good luck!
