DD-almost 6 - has started hanging out with the class bullies and I am really worried about their influence on her! Out of these two girls one is a bully and the other is naughty/rude and together they are both bullies.This has just started this year and for years she has had the same best friend but this has suddenly stopped. I asked her if the mean girls told her she couldn't play with her best friend ( this is something they do) but she said no. She seems happy so I don't think they are bulling her and she is very strong-willed so I am not sure they would even be able to bully her to be honest. But she has always been a nice lovely , well behaved girl and the teachers often tried to get teh girls who where being bullied to buddy up with DD.
It's only 2 weeks back at school and for the first time she has told me twice now she was a little bit mean to someone ( but 'A' was meaner then me and made the other girl cry). and has told me she got into a little but of trouble with her teacher.
I've tried talking to her saying it's not nice, how would you feel etc but she doesn't seem to really care that much or take it in - IYKWIM? I have no idea how to but an end to this!
And just for the record - the parents of these have been spoken to about their behavior as it caused a lot of trouble last year and this year a lot of parents requested their children not be in the same class as these girls. I'd never had an issue so i never requested it. The mother of the bully pretty much has a ' suck it up' attitude and her daughter has been a bully way back when they were all in 2.5 Kindy together. She's had nannies every 6 months since birth and her mum basically seems to not give a toss about her daughter so we all know why her daughter is like this ( but this doesn't help matters at all). Talking to her mum is out of the question - she's the type to knock you out. Any ideas anyone?
