My daughter came home today very distressed. Another girl's mother had accosted her in the playground, saying, 'Now Olivia, what have you been doing to R? She is upset and I don't want her coming home like this for the weekend.' My DD said the mum was very stern. She was distraught as she maintains that she did NOTHING to this girl. When the mother asked R what Olivia had done, the girl shrugged and said she couldn't remember. The mother was very apologetic but by then the damage had been done and my DD (age 9) was in floods of tears. My mother-in law was with her but she is so placid (annoyingly)that she said nothing to this woman. I am really unhappy about this as the other mother is a school governor and is involved with my DD's class quite a lot, so consequently, my DD treats her like a teacher. I think she has abused her position and that she shouldn't have spoken to my DD directly. I believe she should have gone through the class teacher. I feel sorry for my DD because she is adamant that she had done nothing. I know girls fall out all of the time and if I got involved with every little row my kids had with other children... Anyway, what would you do?
