My daughter is a pretty, very athletic, kind, smart child.
She has always been very tall and chunky for her age. It was determined she would be close to 6' tall as an adult. All the other girls in her class are smaller, and petite. There are 2-3 girls that gang up on her by name calling, telling the teacher's on her when she has done nothing, they laugh at her at recess, and tell her she is bad in sports, stupied, trick her, and ignore her during lunch, and basically ostersized her.
I live in a community where I am almost the only single mother. Two years ago, I had a parent call me on the telephone and blame my daughter for bullying his daughter. I spoke to the teacher and learned it was the opposite - the parents were embarrassed. This is one of the same girls in the "mean girl" cliche. I have gotten to know the parents very well through their daughters...Thus far, I have contacted the teacher and have not heard back..What would you do? It is heart wrenching!
