My DD (who is seven and in 2nd grade) has been having issues with a few mean girls at school. Also with two boys that are actually in her class. Today after getting off the bus, she looked really upset so I asked her what was wrong, she told me that a girl who is also a classmate, slapped her on the bus ride home. I have emailed the teacher as soon as I got home. I have also set her up with the school counselor to talk to about the other school bullies. I just dont know what else to do for her. She's been so depressed when she comes home, and two of the mean girls that ride the bus are neighborhood kids, so I know for a fact how mean these girls can get (one of the girls told my DD that she hated her just because she was playing with someone else instead of her.) I just feel so horrible about my DD having to deal with this. She's such a good girl, makes good grades, and so funny. My next door neighbor's son has told me that some kids are mean to her at school.
It made me sad today when she told me she didnt want to make anymore friends.
