  • How old is your daughter? Is there any reason the kids would single her out and not play with her? Has she ever had problems getting along with kids before? I kind of need some more information here.

  • It seems to me that whatever problems you are having with the other mothers is somehow getting taken out on your daughter. If those mothers are talking in front of their children, then those children could easily be picking on your daughter. It sounds to me like your daughter is having some "popularity" issues maybe. It is at that age that girls start to form cliques and decide who is popular and who is not, and unfortunately pick on the ones who aren't. Have you ever thought of taking her out of girl scouts? If she isn't having fun there then why keep her in it? I know it isn't right, but when I was in elementary school the girls in girl scouts always got picked on because they were thought to be nerds. Just a thought. Maybe take her out of that and find something else to do?
