Another little girl said my DD was a 'F***ing B****' ..and this is what i told her. What would you have done?
My DD is at many times a very kind , caring and loving individual.
She will help and be there for you with no question.
She very much has empathy.
However , she is 10 ..and she is starting to get a little uhm...snobby at times, which i have been putting my foot down about and trying to teach her that it is not right to be like that.
She goes to a daycamp...and she has been coming home complaining about a girl in her group that sings constantly ..to the point that she will show me how she sings ..but she is mocking her when she does it.
I have always told her that she needed to stop doing that..and it may be annoying that the girl sings a lot but that it isn't the end of the world and she should not let it bother her so much.
2 fridays ago the camp had a bbq and concert for the parents ..and the little girl sang us a song..she had a fairly good voice, and if she took classes she would be very good at it, and i told my daughter that i thought this.
Well..she came home last week and said that the little girl called her a 'f*cking b*tch".
Now THIS is what i told my DD.
I told her that I do not agree with what the girl said and it was not nice to say at all , HOWEVER ...my DD has not been very nice either , and i am betting that she has complained to the other kids about the girls singing and has mocked her as well to other people..i explained that those things do get around and most likely got back to the little girl...which is why i have been telling / asking her to stop doing it, not to mention that DD is better than that and knows not to talk about people so negatively.
So YES the girl has a right to be upset about how she has been talked about by DD, and that DD should be apologizing to the girl for her behaviour ..if the girl apologizes for calling her that , than that is great..if she doesnt ..that is her choice but that DD should stop talking about people.
What would you have done ?
