just wondered how you tackle bullying.
our daughter who's 4 is being bullied at school. disguting i know at 4/5 yrs old..
i've spoken to another parent who's child is being bullied by the same child/ren. having her hair pulled and tripped over.
daughters behaviour is AWFUL at the moment because of whats going on at school. she doesnt LIKe school anymore , saying its boring and ?? is being nasty to her.
she wont tell me anymore. she just clams up, shuts down and walks away all upset.
i've spoken to the teachers about whats going on. and they seem to brush it under the carpet. she's come home swearing saying she heard the child in question saying it. the teachers say they'll do a whole class talk but nothing happens.
she repeadedly hit her sister the other day. she has got so much anger inside of her. :(
which makes me think theres more going on that she's letting on.
her behaviour is putting so much strain on the family in general and with a newborn baby i'm getting pysically nad now mentally drained and exhausted..... the baby isnt the issue of her behaviour as she's been like this for some time. but i agree baby probably isnt helping the situation! :(
how can i appraoch the situation with her without her getting so upset.? how can i stop her shutting down and get her to talk to me about whats happening.?
