my daughter is being bullied on the bus
What do I do? She had the same issue last year with the same girl. The only difference is that, thank God, this girl is not in class with my daughter as well. This year she only has to deal with her on the school bus.
Last year we went to the teacher and the guidance councilor and it only made matters worse. the girl only got meaner and my Alyson only felt more alone. The schools advice to her was basically to keep her chin up and don't take the girls taunts to heart. Well that is nice and all but it is hard when this girl not only calls her names and puts her hands on her but she pressures other girls into doing the same thing.
I am afraid that Alyson is going to end up decking this girl and getting into some big trouble. (If her sister was doing the same thing she would but because she wants to be good in school she hasn't)
What should I do, should I go to the counselor again, the bus driver doesn't care and in fact gave Alyson a hard time last year when I suggested that her and the other girl should not be seated next to each other. Should I go to the bus service? Should I let kids be kids? Help?
Thank you for all of your great advice and support. I have spoken with the guidance counselor, thankfully it is a new counselor this year, and hopefully we can meet ASAP in an attempt to resolve this once and for all. Once I have taken this action, all hats are off if this girl continues to harass my child, I will except nothing less than suspension. This stops now.
