Principal's Daughter Bullying My Daughter
(Dallas, GA, USA)
Well, my child's bullying story began in May of 2011. Her boyfriend broke up with her the day after the prom and 12 days later began dating another girl. That's when the bullying started. Over the next several months tweets, Facebook posts, and tumblr posts came about from both the ex-boyfriend and the new girlfriend calling my daughter names, commenting on her physical appearance and calling her psycho. Several of the couples' friends got involved in the games and I eventually had to call the police on an 18-year-old who would not leave my daughter and her new boyfriend alone.
The one piece I have left out of this horrible story is the other girl is the daughter of the Principal at my daughter's school. I met with the Principal in May when this started with proof of the cyber harassment and she didn't look at my proof but assured me the bullying would stop. It continued through the summer and then came to a head Fall of 2011.
My daughter and the girl got into a yelling argument during school. My husband and I met with the principal and our two daughters and I felt as if at least something had been accomplished and for a short while things settled down. However, because both girls are involved in the drama department it began again when both were cast in a play. I am at a complete loss as to what to do as it continues to happen and the Principal only believes her daughter and of course the daughter continues to deny everything. I am so over this situation.
The girl is a senior and my daughter is a junior and it will end in May, but I don't think my daughter or my family can take much more of this stress. Any ideas? It's really hard to challenge someone on who is authority and has a decent reputation in the community. So I guess we will try to make it through May. I just feel as if this is unfair.
