The other thing we did: Though we valued the training that little bully provided our daughter, we noticed the school was ignoring the problem and other children with less emotional support and even those with learning disabilities (and so more defenseless) were also getting bullied. The bully was also a victim. She was saying things that indicated she was in an abusive situation at home. We as parents talking to our daughter and occasionally observing the classroom picked up on this. Where were the teachers? We brought it up with the school. They handled it poorly. The bully was basically just kicked out of the school, recieving no help and support, and the other kids were given no tools to build self-strength. We left the school shortly thereafter for this and other reasons.
