So I had coffee with my 6yr old daughter.

We don't get much time to talk. And when we do she doesn't tell me much. So while the ill ones are napping we grabbed some coffe (hardly ever do this) and talked. Here's the point. My dd is very sweet and kind but the kids in her class are always mean to her. So I have this summer to teach her to be a smart ass. She keeps trying to follow the rules at school and handle things like they say. "I don't like it when you talk to me like that." Not anymore. I have to toughen this kid up somehow. It's just not in her nature to be rude or a smart ass. So I'm going to have to teach her.
Kids are so damn cruel sometimes.

Thanks. I'm putting her in jui jitsu also. She needs some confidence I think. If she wasn't so sweet I would not go this route. I'll still teach her to ignore what she can and take the high road. But she has to stick up for herself.

Good luck. :(

We are looking into the bully terminator karate class for my son. He's 11 and the bullying this year has been horrible. It got physical with the kid pushing my son in the ditch and stomping up and down on his back. Finally had to call the sheriff and it has stopped for now. The sheriff told us not to confront the parents because you never know how'd the react. Its insane. when I was a kid you fought it out and went home to parents for an ice pack. Now parents will shoot ya

I totally feel you. I like the idea of the jiu jitsu, instilling confidence is a much better idea than teaching her to be a smart ass, lol. If she's confident, she wont have to be a smart ass.

Well I'm not big on teaching this. But some kids are saying stuff like "I won't invite you to my birthday unless you do this." I want her to just come back at them. That's all. Let them know she's not to be manipulated etc. she keeps being so sweet.

I had trouble with my dd in kindergarten for the same reasons. She was being manipulated into doing things (like bullying!) because kids would say "i won't be your friend .." etc. or just getting flat out walked on. Keep workin with her mama, it will get better. My dd is now 10 and she doesnt let others walk on her now (that I'm aware of)
