My daughter was being bullied by a girl in her group, it was horrible mean girl behaviour. I spoke to the school, but it was tricky as my daughter kept playing with the girl. They were were in the same class and my daughter didn't have anyone else to play with. I requested that they not be put in the same class the next year and that solved it, she has lovely friends and is much happier.
My 10yo son is going through similar. It’s Complicated by the fact he has autism and change is very difficult for him He needs new friends, and he knows he needs new friends that will treat him properly but he says he would rather have friends ‘sometimes’ than no friends at all. All I can do is help build up his confidence to leave this group and make new friends (his teacher says all his classmates love him), help teach him resilience and that bullies bully because they are weak and they are afraid of things they don’t understand, not because there is something wrong with him.
I got so sick of it as it resulted in an assault and nasty texts. I ended up going to police and they went and spoke to the child no issues since
I was in the same boat a few years back. My son was in year two and getting physically assaulted by a teachers son. My son wasn’t the only kid getting hurt. The class teacher tried really hard and would supervise where she could and would give the child punishment by making him stay in the library at lunch times when he’d been hurting kids but the kid never went there. Because his mum was a teacher the principal refused to take it further. The mum would say he’s autistic so doesn’t know he’s being rough. This kid would pick my son up, throw him around, slam him to the ground then jump on his back. Serious stuff but nothing was done.
