I work at a daycare where my 4 kids attend (well 4 out of 5 attend the oldest is 16). My 12yo DD got into a fight today & I don't know how to handle it. Another girl (who is known as a bully at the daycare) told my DD that her sunglasses were fake. My DD ("B") & the other girl (I will call "K") got into a yelling match calling each other fake & K called B & her whole family white trash. B pulled K's hair & K turned around & threw a punch at B. I guess from what I was told by the director & the teacher involved the only male teacher we have (who is like 6 foot 6 & very big) had to come between the girls & pull K off B. Both girls got written up for it. The rule is 3 write ups & you get suspended from daycare. If the incident happens again then the child gets kicked out of daycare. (I personally told my DD 2 more write ups & she gets kicked out).
My question to you ladies is- should I ground my daughter? She DID pull the other girls hair first. But at the same time- as some other teachers who heard about it said- she was defending her family. IMO I think the other teachers are being biased because it's a co-workers DD. But on the other hand this other girl is a bully (not the 1st time she has caused trouble & gotten in trouble for it).
