My 12 yr.old daughter is being told by another girl at school that she is fat. Just to give you an idea, my daughter is 4'9" and weighs 95lbs. She is not ballet dancer thin, but she is very athletic and healthy. This girl at school has gone so far as to describe, among a group of other girls, a dream she had of my daughter "being run over by a doughnut truck that was chasing her because she was their best customer." My daughter tells me she's beginning to feel self-conscious about her clothes now and I'm very concerned about the long term effects this could have. Does anyone have a recommendation for how to best intervene/help our daughter? Going to the school can sometimes make things worse, but not going to the school can send the wrong message, as well.
