I've had another parent (who happens to be my best friend) over at my house accusing my 8yo daughter of bullying her 8 yo daughter, these kids have been friends since nursery school, and this school year they were put in different classes. My friends daughter is extremely sensitive and very introverted, and mine has upset her by playing with other friends. It's simple a case of growing apart - one's a tom-boy and one's a right wee girl - hence the different groups of friends. My friend's daughter has told her teacher that my daughter is ignoring her and excluding her, and the teacher has told my friend (who works within the school) that she's monitoring the situation with respect to her daughter's feelings, though the school have not contacted me. I've never had any problems with my daughters behaviour when she's at school, though I'm well aware like all little girls she isn't always an angel. It's my intention to contact the school tomorrow and find out what the situation is.....do any mum's have advice for dealing with this?
