I need some good advice. Today my daughter came home in tears, again, that her former best friend was being a little bitch again (my words, not hers). Every friend my daughter makes this former best friend has to take away from my daughter.
It started this past summer with the girl, "June", running her mouth to neighbor kids about how much she didn't like my daughter, trying to impress the neighbors. Since school started, June has kicked my daughter, pushed her around on the playground, and excludes my daughter from things every chance she gets.
Today, June started running her mouth about my daughter to someone else at recess. Thankfully, and the next recess that someone else came to my daughter and told her what June had been saying. Those comments my daughter couldn't repeat clearly enough for me to understand, but they were hurtful in nature. Then, on the walk home June intentionally refused to allow my daughter to walk home with someone because June was walking with said kid.
I've talked to June's parents and they yell at her to knock it off, but it's continuing. I've sent an email to both teachers (thankfully the girls are in different classes) asking that the girls be kept separate as much as possible.
Where do I go from here, and what can I do? Since June's behaviors are escalating do I ask for a meeting with the principal? Do I have the other parents, (not as) good friends of ours involved?
I know what I want to do: talk to the parents. But that isn't changing anything.
I thought this kind of bullshit wasn't supposed to happen until middle school? My daughter, and June, are SIX!
