A little vent and advice needed...am I crazy!?!
I don't get on here much, but I need some advice from others...
My daughter just turned 6, is in kindergarten, and since the beginning of the year we have been having problems with a 5th grade girl on her bus that lives down the road. It started over the summer and I thought we got past the issue until things started to change on the bus. This girl constantly was sitting with my then 5 year old and bossing her around... telling my child what and what not to do. Also telling her that we, her parents were mean. I am sorry, but first off No 5th grader should be sitting with my 5 year old child, there is a large age gap there that I am not comfortable with. I spoke with the bus driver and told him that this girl is NOT to sit with or near my child. Nothing changed, so I spoke with the principal who promised a change. Lately I have been noticing a big change in my daughter, attitude and just nasty towards others. This is soooo not like her. So, after talking with her and digging deeper I knew it was this girl again.
After she gets on the bus this girl walks up and sits with or next to my daughter, after the bus pulls away WTF!! I was also told that this girl told my daughter that I called her and another girl a "B*tch"... Nice right!?! To my kindergarten child.My daughter will not be riding the bus anymore, I went in to talk to principal this morning but she was in a meeting, now I am waiting on a phone call. My husband is furious, it's just plain ridiculous that a parent makes a complaint, does not want this older child near theirs and yet its still happening.
** Let me also give you some background on the issue. Over the summer, we had a few neighborhood kids come play, just about everyday. I knew where they lived, their parents, and they were close in age. However, this brought more kids to come and think this was a neighborhood playground. I let it go for a day, until this Girl was completely rude and bullying one of the kids that I was ok with playing there, because she was heavier. That was it, I told them to go home, they were to old to play with my kids, and no one is going to be a brat playing here. So, since then she would walk by (shes another child that is allowed to roam wherever the hell they want) and just stare and give dirty looks. That is just one incident, I have had to ask her to leave more than once. I have not found out where she lives yet, but I am ready to go knocking on her parents door myself.
So... am I crazy? Would this piss any other parents off, especially if it was your kindergarten student?? I would like to hold on to the fact that my daughter is 6 and I can still choose who she is around and who influences her life. I've made it clear that I do not like how this girl acts, she is mean and obviously is allowed to do whatever she wants, I do not want my daughter around her.
