During this semester, my daughter has been taking this law class in high school and she briefly mentioned having to sit next to a girl who was kind of annoying. She didn't have any friends in the class, she's the only senior in a group of juniors and 1 sophomore - the girl sitting next to her.
Now yeaterday I was at the gym talking to another woman who was a mother of a girl in my daughter's high school and she mentioned this law class, and how some girl was being very rude to her kid. I realized she meant my daughter! She had apparently been assigned to some debate project on the same team as her and had been really sarcastic about their side of the project, humiliating the girl.
when i asked my daughter if this was true, she said she had made a couple jokes but that's all they were. I don't know if i believe her! What should I do? Should i tell the other girl's mom?
I did end up talking to her, and heres what she said. Apparently this other girl is a bit of an extremist in her political views and she told the teacher without asking her that they'd be doing the project on how the death penalty should be even be given to underage people who commit crimes. My daughter entirely disagreed with her opinoon and ended up doing a very satirical argument. she insists she didn't do it to be mean, she just didn't believe kids should get such harsh penaltys.. SO when the debate came, the other girl went at it with a lot of effort and my daugher kind of mocked their stance.
