My daughter and I recently attended a GirlScout cookie rally. It was her first time going to a gathering and she was really excited about being a GirlScout. She came up to me crying so hard and so upset I could not understand what she was saying. I later found out once we had ledft why my little girl was so upset. A GROWN woman yelled and said some really mean things to her. Yelled that that wasn't her troop and to go away! I am so angry because now my daughter does not want to do the girlscouts now. I have thought about trying to find this woman and have a pysical confrontation, but that would just land me in jail and not solve anything but I dont want her to think she can do that to other people's children who she does not even know. What should I do.

She does not like my daughter's troop leader. That was why she did. The point is the girls were not devided by troops and she yelled at my kid to GO away this isn't your troop. To me there is no reason to yell at a child over that. It was a rally for upcoming cookie sells. Their was no division. Eveyone was all together. Your advice was good and if I can get her number I will call and get her side b4 I do anything else. thx alot

Well I do think that there are always 2 sides to every story, so I think talking to this woman would be best. Yes you want to punch her face, I get that. But I think you need to find out why she said what she did. Maybe you can figure it out and talk to your daughter and she might then want join again.
