My 5 year old daughter is in her last summer at daycare where older kids are also in her class when their parents work in the summer. She has had a hard time this summer because one of the older kids called her ugly and some of the younger ones call her mean or stupid because she can be bossy at times but deep down that is covering up that she is really sensitive. When she gets in trouble at home she gets really angry quickly and starts calling herself mean, ugly and stupid and might even hit herself. She is thankfully going into kindergarten and away from these kids but girls are mean everywhere and I can see her self esteem at 5 being affected although she would call anyone names. Does anyone have any suggestions
