Snotty girl at the end of the street

We moved here a couple of years ago and there is a family at the end of the street that consists of twins, a boy and girl aged about 9 or 10, and a girl about DD's age.  DD is 7.  I have developed a neighborly repoire with the mother.  The older twin girl is always being snarky to DD.  I've even heard her call DD a weirdo when she didn't think I could hear.  I've let it go and let it go but honestly it just makes my blood boil.  DD has an older friend who is 11 and when she comes over they usually end up playing outside in the culdesac and all the other kids come out and play and it's great, but every single time this girl is in the group DD's older friend tells me the things she says to DD.  She just talks down to her, and is super condescending, etc, just overall jerkiness.  I keep trying to keep DD away from her, but it's impossible what with how tight knit our street is.  We are always doing block parties, etc.  For Halloween we will have a block party with a bounce house......anyway, I am well aware that this girl does not have to be friends with my DD or even like her but the rudeness is unnecessary.  I wanna tell the mom, because I would wanna know.  I already confronted the girl, of course she just lied and said no I don't not like her......what she doesn't realize is I have an inside source.  WWYD?

I also would like to add that when we first moved here DD would bake cookies, treats, etc on a regular basis and then first house she would choose to deliver them to was this family.  She's been nothing but super nice to them.

I would tell my daughter to stand up for herself.

But honestly I don't get involved with childhood friend drama. They need to figure this stuff out on theirown.

Then maybe it's just not bothering her as much as it is you.

You need to give your daughter the tools to handle it, she will deal with girls like this many times in life and mommy can't always tattle to the other mommy.

She just sounds like a little jerk. She doesn't sound like she's hurting your kid though. I'd tell your dd that this is just something she's gonna have to deal with through life, not everyone is sunflowers and roses and she's just gonna have to learn to stick up for herself.

I'd rat her out to her mom and I'd send her home the first time she says something mean, every time, or call the rest of the kids into your house or yard to play and freeze her out.
