Yesterday was a rough day. My youngest daughter was playing with the neighbor's girls, one a year older than her, the other a year younger, both bigger than her by a fair amount. They basically double teamed her and body slammed her into a trampoline. Thank God she wasn't hurt. Just a couple of bruises and scared. But not hurt. That created a heated argument with their mother who never seems to believe that her little darlings do anything wrong (and she doesn't watch them so they get away with murder) even though I wasn't the only person who saw it. Those girls are MEAN! I'm scared to death what's going to happen as these girls get older and can drive and such. My daughter is only 8 so it's going to be a long hard road with these kids. One or both of them will always be in her school. Always be at her bus stop. In her dance classes. And in her other various school activites. It could get really ugly.
Anyway, I didn't handle it well and binged. Today, I'm just physically and emotionally drained but not kicking myself. Just trying to pick myself up and keep going. I do have a good friend who's daughter is a very good friend of my daughter's and they are taking her out for the day so she can get out of the neighborhood. After the blowup yesterday, these little brats were riding their bikes up and down in front of our house making faces and calling names. Just basically harrassing my daughter and the mother didn't do anything about it. Yes, it will be a long, hard road.

    Being a kid is tough, being a parent is even tougher, when mine were younger my step son was the bully, what worked for us was positive attention for good behavior and ignore when behavior was bad.(Punishment if needed) The neighborhood kids did most of the greatest work, they wouldnt invite him over or play with him. It was sad to watch but he figured it out fairly quick and started to play nice. Sometimes a parent needs to have faith in the ability of their children. Safety is always first, ask your daughter how she thinks it should be handled.

    ok I know this is so hard - but I do have a solution that worked for us - we had a girl who would come by and tease our dog - calling his name then when he came they threw rocks at him until one day he almost bit her - well we could never prove it and her mother was a jerk and she even tried to drown our cat in our kiddy pool with a bucket over its head so we set up a video camera and caught it all on tape - no way her mother could deny that and she got in big trouble too - we were very afraid if our dog did bite her we would be in a law suit - I know it is a drastic measure but someone has to open the mothers eyes. those girls are going to really hurt someone badly! no worries either - life does happen and you are back on track and kept it to a minimum so you had a successful day for sure! take care of you and continue forward. it will get better!

    All I can say oh, man. Maybe they will get tired of picking on your daughter and move on to another child. You are in a tough spot. I will be thinking about you. It sounds like you are getting back on track which is something you can control.
