The other day my daughter was playing with a girl in her class and this girl said my daughter cheated in the tricycle race and then scratched my daughter's face with both hands, drawing blood and leaving about 5 scratches on her face. The little girl was placed in time out, however she had no remorse and was not apologetic at all towards my daughter. I have spoken with the director of the preschool and they said they are not taking this lightly however I am livid. I know they have spoken to the girl's parents, but I am still concerned for my daughter. She is very sweet and would never hurt anyone. I have asked her to stay away from this girl, but my daughter said if she apologized nicely she would play with her. I don't want my daughter anywhere near her and have explained to her that she shouldn't play with people that don't treat her with respect. The teacher suggested that we talk to her and empower her so she doesn't want to play with her or people that don't treat her well. Any advice on empowering a 4 year old besides just explaining her worth and that there are too many nice kids to play with mean one's.
