Here's the Mom Drama you've been craving every since Big Little Lies ended. If you couldn't get enough of Laura Dern's screams on her righteous crusade to find out which kid was bullying little Amabella, you'll thoroughly enjoy this juicy "Am I The A**hole?" post.
A mom, who I am absolutely picturing as Laura Dern, posted on Reddit about her attempts to get her daughter's bully's mom to tell her own daughter to stop.
So, I'm 26F and a mom to B. (8F). For a few weeks now, B. has been coming home crying because of this girl in her class, H. Apparently, H. has never been violent, but she is really mean to B. and it's clearly getting to her. The teacher was fortunately really nice about this and said she would read this story about bullying in class and, if necessary, talk to H. in private about the situation. She did both, but unfortunately it did absolutely nothing, so the teacher asked me if I would like her to mediate a meeting between me and H.'s parents, if they agreed to it. They didn't. So basically, I had no other choice but trying to talk to them directly.
Some of us are in this parent group chat, which we only use for school functions, last minute needs for rides, stuff like that. H.'s mom is on that group chat, so I pulled her number from there and sent her a text, explaining the situation and asking her if it was possible for her to talk to H. about it or, maybe, if she wanted to, we could all meet up to try and work it out. Literally, the only answer I got from her was something along the lines of "This is normal kid behavior and you'll see it when you have more parenting experience". I tried to talk it out further, even waited for her one day at drop off, but she pulled the "you're harassing me" card and I, not knowing what to do, stopped. The bullying didn't, though.
