Well, I'd start with telling your kids to try to steer clear of these two girls. I realize that may be very hard to do. If there is name calling etc, tell your children to not engage, to just ignore it and walk or run away. If you feel these girls are a physical threat to your children, make sure they are always with a buddy when they go out of the apartment. It might help if they were with you or another adult for a time so they are less likely to get teased. Bullies feed on making others feel unsure or badly about themselves. Once your kids can show they are unaffected by the teasing the girls will probably move on. Keeping your kids busy will help too. Get them into after school sports, clubs or classes. Not only does that build self-esteem but it will keep them away from the apartment. A self-defense class might be a good idea to start. Why did you call the police, just curious? Did you speak to the girls' mother?
