My daughter (6yo) has had a problem with one of the kids in her class since she started school last year. The child has down right bullied her and to be frank, the entire class.
Last year there was slapping, pushing, hair pulling. Bad language and organizing other kids to gang up and single one child out. My daughter is no saint, and I'm sure at times these incidents are exaggerated. The girl and her parents were in for meeting with the principal, and there were numerous complaints about her. My daughter who loves school went through a stage where she no longer wanted to go.
Earlier this year the other girl took cheese and smeered it all over my daughter's chair while she was in the toilet. My daughter sat in it unknowingly and was very upset by it. I called the school and complained. I have now called the school on 3 occasions about this child.
Today I was in work, but my husband collected her to be told, and given a note that this child had kicked my daughter in the back and she had "been punished accordingly". They were playing tag and my daughter had caught her. I'm frustrated now: I've called the school, written letters, I've met with the teachers, I've spoken to the principal.
What do I do!?!?! It is ridiculous that this child get away with such behavior!
