I recently went to a store where one of the cashiers who knows my kids because her youngest daugher and my son played soccer together two years ago. Her daughter tried to say that my son threw a rock and hit her daughter in the eye. Well, come to find out she lied because I had two other kids and parents tell me that at the time it supposedly happened, my son was on the field and couldn't have done it. Needless to say and I hate to even say it, I don't like her daughter. She still blames my son and it was two years ago. The problem is that everytime I go to this store and she's working and if I have my youngest daughter with me (and actually, even when I don't) she always fusses over her and refers to my other two as "BAD and MEAN". At first I laughed it off and said "Why do you always say that, they're not mean or bad". My question is, what else should I say to her because if my older two are with me, it bothers them and me.

I agree but I forgot to mention the fact that her daughter and my kids live literally a minute away from us and ride the same bus. I'm trying to avoid and repercussions for my children because of it.

Her job is to cashier and not to criticize your children. Your son did not throw the rock and even if he had he would have been disciplined and if nothing like that happened again then she should let it go. It was over two years ago. If you want to say something mean back, which I usually don't recommend but in her case it may be necessary to shut her up, say, "Speaking of bad children how's your little liar doing?" and say it with a sincere smile.
