My soon to be 5th grade daughter is going to be in the same class with a girl that smacked her in the 3rd grade. I'm hoping that this girl has grown up a little, and I think they've both made amends, but I'm a little nervous about this, though. She isn't worried in the least, which is interesting. Should I switch her out of her class (I don't really want to do this because she's already told people who she has as a teacher) or should I give her a book about dealing with bullies just to prepare herself for possible conflicts?
I had a bully or 2 all throughout elementary school, and I feel as though every year cannot be ideal as far as classroom dynamics go.
