So my daughter at an age when she recently just starting wearing deodorant. She didnt use it, and her underarms smelled. 5 girls bullied her. My daughter is hurt and embarrassed. She wants to physical attack them because of it. But you know cowards always work in groups.

What do you mean that they "bullied" her?  Is there a question here?

Have her use deodorant and tell her to stand up for herself. If this happened at school inform the school. When you noticed she smelled she should have started using it.

So you're upset because she can't "physically attack" these girls because they're in a group?

No one should be beating anyone up. Makes your dd a bully too.

Were they mean or did they bully her? Does it happen everyday? Is she afraid to go to school?
Why can't parents ever just say, " wear deodorant and forget about it."

That stinks. I hope they dont play it out foreverrrr. I knew girls like that way back when I was in school. I knew a poor girl who picked her nose once in the 2st grade and in 9th grade she was still the nose picker. I remember feeling so bad for her every year. I mean really? It was second grade!!!!

People making fun of your daughter and teasing her for not wearng deoderant is not bullying. That is just kids being kids. It's really just humans being human, because I make comments about people in public that don't wear deoderant too, I can't keep the "WHOA" off of my face.

Time to stop turning every incident into "bullying". Just look at the football player who walked off because he was "bullied". I can't imagine any child getting through life without being teased or messed with. It happens to everyone, but not everyone allows it to become their defining factor.

I believe it has gotten out of hand though.  This world of, they need to learn to stand up for themselves.  Kids and parents alike are getting nastier.  I do believe children need to learn to stand up for themselves, but sometimes it really does go to far.
