Hello- I am the mom of an 8 year old girl. She has been in a private school since kindergarten. There is a girl who has been there for the last couple years who has been calling my daughter terrible name and spreading rumors to the other kids and telling them not to play with my child. The teacher decided to ignore us when we asked for help. She never even talked with my daughter to find out what was going on. Then she emails me and wrote my child up for stepping on the back of another kids shoe. When the kid tattled the teacher asked my child and she said she didn't realize she did it and it was an accident. The teacher told me she was written up for lying more than the incident itself. I told her that I hoped it didn't leave scars on the kid that got his shoe stepped on like the emotional scars my daughter has from being verbally abused and outcast by her class mates, and that I wish the teacher would have stuck up for my child like she stuck up for the kid with the stepped on shoe. She never replied and I didn't let my child go back to school there. I feel like even the teachers are mistreating my child. Has anyone else gone through this, and if so how did you deal with it? I am up set that the children with the bad behavior have not been reprimmanded. I am upset that the teachers allow this to happen and will not listen to my child. She is starting a new school and is affraid the kids will treat her the same way and she now has many insecurities. I do as well! The new school seem to have a great "no tolerance" policy, but I wonder if the teachers/staff pay attention or listen when there is a problem?
