  • First of all I'm sorry for the trouble your daughter is having with the neighborhood bullies. U need to stop it now!!! It will get worse if something is not done! If u r on speaking terms with the mom I would talk to her. But,if she is one of those moms u can't talk to then u need to handle it yourself. Do the girls live on your street? Message me back we'll talk.

  • If I saw her throw a bottle of water at my child I would say something and then talk to the mom or dad. I do think you need to talk to the child's parents (maybe better to talk to dad if he is nice) and tell them what you have noticed. As a cop dad should know that bullying is not acceptable behavior and hopefully he will put a stop to it in his child. I would also not allow that child to play with yours, and encourage your child to find other friends to play with.

  • i would not allow my child to play with that child, nor would i put up with another adult's personal issues, especially if her negativity is directed towards me or my child.
    there are other things your child can do besides put up with neighborhood bullies. take her to the park, get her involved with sports or other community activities.

    and the next time that child or her mother got in my face about anything, i'd get to steppin'...right back! the child probably has learned this behavior from her mother..oh and another thing, the dad may be a cop, but that doesn't mean he knows how to be a man or handle a bossy woman. he's probably whooped. JMHO.

  • I wouldn't allow my child to play with them or even associate with them; and dullscissors hit the nail on the head
