    to her in conversation with others and calling her names - mean, selfish, bossy, etc - telling her her work is terrible, rolling her eyes at her, etc. They've been told by school to stay away from each other and stop interacting and the girl just tells my dd "my mom told me to ignore you, not even look at you or speak to you" which makes my dd feel like even the mom is against her. Even today in religious school she said the girl was picking on her and she even thinks pushed her on purpose in the hall. Tomorrow the principal is supposed to speak to them but after the guidance counselor and teacher has spoken to them several times I'm not sure it would help. WWYD? I'm getting pissed!
