“Ignoring somebody is not bullying.”
I hope for your daughter’s sake you figure out that the above is exactly how “nice” girls from “nice” families bully other girls. Unlike boys, they use isolation to establish and enforce the savage pecking order. And to a kid, it’s every bit as vicious as a right-cross to the jaw.
You sit alone at lunch day in and day out trying to choke down a peanut butter sandwich, your shame and humiliation on display, and then tell that kid it isn’t “bullying.”
It depends. It’s one thing if your entire class isn’t talking to you because of rumors or something. Literally two people doing it, no way.
And like I said in previous posts, maybe I’m more antisocial than most. In high school, I had 4-5 really good friends and the rest of them could go take a flying leap. I’d rather have a few really good friends than 200 acquaintances, I’ve never been the type that needs to run in a herd.
