A woman asks, "My daughter is being bullied by some other girls at recess. I had no idea that this kind of "mean girl" behavior started at such an early age. What can I do to help?" Ann Douglas has some answers.
Dear Dr. Laura,
My son is a high needs kid. We have, for the most part, been able to manage his outbursts. Today at school we were called because he told two separate children that he wanted them to be dead. After the first time I sat down and talked with him in the quiet area and did believe that he understood how important it was not to say things like that. After I left he said it again to a different child. The day care is very concerned and did stress that in public school he would most likely be sent home if it happened there.
