My 3rd grade dau is very sweet & sensitive. I've given her advice on how to stick up for herself to the "mean girls" at school, but she hasnt had the years of crap to jade her outlook on things, to help her muster up the nerve to use that advice. (God love her!) So I tried telling her to tell them, "When you say or do ___, it hurts my feelings, and I know you wouldn't want that would you." (Mind you the advice I gave to her about standing up was not being mean back, just being strong & standing up to them- but she just doesnt have it in her to say what I've suggested) What other suggestions do you wise ladies have when dealing w/ this "mean girl" crap?
