My 5 year old daughter is getting bullied in Kindergarten. I went and told the teacher, nothign was done. I told the principal, nothing was done. I called CAS and nothing was done. I tried to change her schools and they wouldn't let her transfer. They told me to "Deal with the mother myself" I am thinking of home schooling? Shouldnt they expel these bullies? I mean they are in KINDERGARTEN. My husband is very against home schooling he says "kids have to learn to deal with these things on their own" ....but at 5 ?!?! she takes it out on her sister now too. She has such an attitude on her since going to school. Any thoughts on what I can do here

Thanks for the reply. The child has spat on mine. Called her a stupid Bi*ch. Pointed "finger guns" at her and much more.

As for contacting the mother I am 3 months pregnant and I am worried how she will take it if I go up to her and tell her what is happening. The last thing I want is a violent fight to cause harm to my baby. So I dont think meeting her is an option. I mean if her child does that, what does the mother do? Surely my child is not the first to recieve it.

I wish the school would do more but all I really want is to transfer her schools. I know bullying happens everywhere...but spitting? calling such vulgar names?

Your daughter needs to learn coping skills to deal with these type of situations. Yes she is only 5 but that is when they start learning how to deal with people so yes there will be bullying of some sort and yes she needs to learn how to deal with the situation, how to use her words to make it stop. However all being said the school should have done something to help remedy the situation, bullying should not be tolerated. Perhaps the school does not feel what was done was serious enough to be considered bullying. I as a parent would contact the other mother and discuss the situation I am sure the other mother will not be happy with her child and will have a talk with them.
