I am very concerned about how my daughter is being treated by other girls in the Grade 5 GATE class. Mr. J seems to teach interesting information, but the girls are really mean, even online.
I have restricted Emily's use of the internet, but several others girls in the area, not only at our elementary school, are friends on FB and Twitter and other sites. They communicate mean comments instantly, even pictures.
I don't know what to do.
My daughter is quiet, doesn't make friends easily, and some of her friends from previous grades at this school now won't talk to her for fear they will also be targeted. The parents we are acquainted with don't know what's going on.
It is my opinion there are students in the class that are future sociopaths. I know that's harsh. But the cold-blooded treatment of my daughter and others in the class (the three main ones make some of the boys cry frequently) is cruel, even some of the substitute teachers won't go back. The Middle School is famous for mean girls.
I am very concerned for my daughter's mental health in this climate.
