First for the past two weeks we have had this classmateade bullying my daughter so the little girl has stolen my daughters keychains she has stolen her pencils pulled her hair taking off her hair ties. I'm thinking my daughter was fed up and miss interpreted what she was saying. I spoke to her about it and she was upset but didn't know the difference between what she said and what it actually means to kill someone. She said she was Very Angry that her classmate kept being mean. What do I do?

Ok so I just had the meeting and the teacher completely understand the counselor is going to watch the girls and the principal is also on watch but so far they are understanding that some times it is an expression that it used but not meant as that. They assured me that the rumor of my daughter getting kicked out of school completely is not true. My daughter knows now knows the meaning of it and that it is not acceptable to use that and the teacher is the first person she needs to get in a situation happening at school instead of trying to handle it herself with a bully.

Many times a child picks up phrases that they really don't understand the literal meaning of them. How many times do people say "I'm so mad I could kill somebody" or "I could just kill you right now". It doesn't mean we're actually going to kill someone. It's just an expression, and it seems like your daughter hear it somewhere and repeated it in the wrong situation.

I wish you luck speaking with people at the school. Some schools I think go too far with their zero tolerance policies, and good kids are thrown out for stupid stuff that is just part of being a kid. Hopefully her school can be more reasonable.

What I meant was the little girls parents are trying to get my child out of that school. Or so is the rumor. I am definitely going to see what I can do to help solve this problem.

Oh no, I have a meeting tomorrow morning with the teacher, principal and counselor about the issue. I absolutely hope it helps.

They are 8 years old. A parent already called me where she is friends with the little girls mom and she is trying to get my daughter out of school. I don't believe that would help. Besides her daughter is the bully and mine couldn't handle it anymore she had anger built up is what I'm thinking. I feel awful...

Contact the school and ask if they could conducts some kind of meeting between the girls to resolve the issue and find a way to move forward. How old are the girls? The school needs to be involved in this, however, because that is the only way they are going to find a resolution between the girls.
