These are four year olds people! Now last year she got picked on by a blonde in her class for having dark hair. There was another little boy who really kept to himself. So my daughter sat down and made him a card. She really does have a sweet heart. Now a different kid just came up to her while they were having independent playtime. And he said "E you're a loser" CANNOT BELIEVE THESE THINGS HAPPEN SO EARLY

It is crazy how young kids are starting in on that type of stuff. I hope she was not too upset about it. It is hard to teach a kid to not let that sort of thing bother them, but you should start trying somehow. My son is 8 and he gets really upset by some of the things kids say to him still. he is getting better about not letting things bother him, but he is a very emotional child.

Things have gotten so bad nowadays. Kids are starting to do things at such young ages. As the parents of the innocent kids getting picked on and bullied it is hard to see your kids come home all so sad and hurt emotionally and physically. I have already learned that. My son started school last August and he loved school and riding the bus to and from school. Then little by little he started coming home sad and get in the house and tears just started flowing. I talked to my son and he had a bully on the school bus. He came home with a black eye twice and a busted lip. He told his bus driver every time it happened and i even talked with the bus driver. Then a week before halloween he got off the bus screaming bloody murder sounded like with blood on his hands and on his head. the bully hurt his bad this time. he had to go to the emergency room and get 4 staples put in his head at 5 years old. the bus driver did nothing about it because he claimed both the boys were horseplaying and he would have to punish both of them. the most they could do was make the parents of the boy pay the bill (Which my son's medicaid paid for)and apoligize for it. That had me so mad and upset. After that the boy on the bus left him alone. I am now glad to say we moved in december and now he rides a different bus.

Kids get picked on. Name calling to get attention. Hopefully, it doesn't upset her too much. You can't protect her from this forever.

I say shame on their parents!!! Children are a product of their enviorment and learn from those around them. Seems you have taught your daughter to love and not hate. Good for you. I would contact the school about this. It is all over the news now how bullying in school can cause everlasting damage to the children who are being made fun of. This needs to be stopped and stiff penalties should be enforced for those who bully. I don't know exactly what you would do to a four year old but it should be stopped now because these kids' taunting will only get worse the older they get. Good luck to you and your daughter.

oh its unreal isn't it. ya know i knew kds could be like this but so early. we had a lot of problems with kids in my sons old school and i hated it. it got so bad my son hated going to school and it was a fight everyday just to get him up to go. and it broke my heart to make him go. he had this one kid that was just really mean and not just saying things he would walk up a hit him in the head or kick him rip his clothes. i had had it and talked to the teather and the principle but no one wanted to do a thing. finally my husband and i told him to kick this kids butt. not everyone agreed with us and the school sure wasn't happy about it but ya know what after my son started standing up for himself he didn't have as many problems. he never did kick the kids butt cuz he was afraid of getting in trouble,we told him he wouldn't get in trouble with us and we would take care of the school but he did start doing things back to this kid so the kid backed off. i did tell them we told him too and they didn't say much but as i told the teather if this was takin care of before now we wouldn't of told him this but no one wants to do anything to this kid for some reason. it was bad and thank goodness we are now in a different state and school. this school is nothing like it and he really don't mind school anymore. he is now in forst grade and things are the way they should be for a kid his age.

Kids can be so cruel, I have come across a lot of spiteful little kids when my sons first started in their pre school classes, some of the other kids would hit them and such and both of mine never wanted to go. I think a lot of it comes from the fact that they are finding their feet and they are thrown together all of a sudden and it makes some of them spiteful. As time went on and they all got used to each other things evened out and some good friendships grew but I get so hurt for littleones when they get picked on at school and I just want to say something to the horrible kids!
