There's a child in DD#1's preK who is totally in DD's face. (I witnessed this the other day, brought her to school, and as soon as her jacket was hung on her hook, this girl came over ... several inches taller than DD, too ... and literally got in DD's face, with her hands on her hips and her chest pushed out ... man. ) And so DD told me that she told this girl that if the girl continues to be mean to her, that DS#1 (who's 2 years older) will come beat the girl up. And yeah, she got the idea because she was talking about how this girl was mean, and so DS#1 got all protective and said, "If she does that to you again, I'll karate-kick her." (He was in the middle of practicing kicks during this conversation.) So DD took that and ran with it, I guess ...
So, I spoke to the girl's mother. Who says that all the children in the class (girls, that is) are picking on her daughter, are ostracizing her daughter, are mean to her daughter, are not inviting her daughter to their birthday parties (there haven't been any ... or else they're not inviting DD either because I haven't heard of any). But I don't know. May be happening.
And I'm not sure where DD fits in to all of this. And if I ask what's going on with her and this girl, I get a 4yo's answer. IYKWIM.
Anybody dealing with these situations with girls?
