What I meant to say in my previous post is that it might not really be about the fact that she doesn't watch TV, but something else.
I meant that at the nursery school level, I don't think the kids have deep discussion involving TV, otherwise my daughter would be a complete social outcast. I think the TV enters at a very superficial level. They probably spend a lot of time talking about TV, but my daughter seems to easily be able to "fake it". My daughter is an only child, so she is always role playing with things at home, like she'll take two green beans and they'll have a conversation like, "Dora this, Cinderella that, babble babble." There's not much content that is specifically tied to the details of the TV shows.
So what I meant is that, if I were in your cousin's shoes, I'd have a more general talk with the nursery school teachers to see how my little girl is doing interacting with the kids in question, and I would ask the nursery school teachers what they are specifically going to do to encourage better social interactions between the other children my little girl. Just out of curiosity, I'd ask my little girl where the mobbing is happening. In the playground, where older kids are mixing with the younger kids? In the classroom where the teachers are supposed to be right there? I'd expect the teachers to offer to watch my child closely at those times to identify and then stop such incidents.
By the way, just out of curiosity, what is this TV show that started all of this?
