We have a girl in our neighborhood that moved here at the end of last school year. She was in difficult child 1's SpEd resource room. She was always teasing him and causing problems with BOTH my kids. This summer, she got difficult child 1 kicked out of the city pool for 1/2 a day. He and some friends were sitting in the shallow end talking. Girl goes up to them and starts butting in and teasing difficult child 1. difficult child 1 blew up at her and she went to tell the lifeguard that he was being mean to her. difficult child 1 is so used to being blamed for things that he wouldn't talk to the lifeguard so he got kicked out. I went back, got difficult child 1's two friends he'd been talking to as witnesses and went to the manager to explain the whole story. Gf1 was allowed back in. Fast forward.... Girl's grandma that she lives with is friends with my kids' friend's mom. Girl makes herself at home at friend's house and friend's family is too nice to ask her to leave. When my kids are there, friend and my boys ignore her. She gets irritated and starts causing problems...teasing them. Kids come home to get away from her, she follows, tells me I need to tell my kids to be nice. I tell her to stay away from them and off my property. She screams like a banshee and swears at me all the way down the street as she's going back home. Fast forward again... Boys come home from friend's one night and told me Girl has been sent away for a medication adjustment. They are happy as can be because she isn't around for awhile. Fast forward some more.... difficult child 2 has been volunteering at our local library (1 block from our house) for 3 years now. Last week(the Wednesday before Thanksgiving), he goes to return a book and offers to help the librarian that is working alone and it's busy. She says she can't let him do that until the head librarian talks to him. He comes home and tells me this. I call that librarian and she says she's not comfortable talking to me about it 1)it's not her place and 2)she isn't in a place (location) where she can. So we wait until Monday (they're closed for the 4 day Thanksgiving week-end). difficult child 2 and I go to talk to the head librarian. She tells us that a young girl came in and told them that difficult child 2 had pushed and tripped her and she hurt her back. difficult child 2 has this confused look on his face and (I don't know why) I ask him if Girl has been at the library lately. He said no, he hasn't seen her anywhere in a couple weeks. Librarian asks who I'm talking about and give her some background about our dealing with Girl and the things she has caused. difficult child 2 tells us that several weeks ago they were at friend's house and Girl was there. Friend asked difficult child 2 to write something for him, Girl thinks it's something about her, sqeezed difficult child 2's wrist and grabs the pencil away from him, jabbing him as it went. difficult child 2 pushed Girl and she tripped over her own feet and fell. That was it. Librarian admits that is who told them and "because we are mandated reporters we had to make a report to the police. Has officer **** been in contact with you?" Uhh, no. "Well then she must have decided it didn't need pursuing". difficult child 2 and I walk back home and talk about how they need to stay FAR away from Girl. She is dangerous and can cause some serious harm to his reputation. I told him that no matter where they were or what they were doing, if Girl is there or shows up, they need to leave IMMEDIATELY. I don't care if friend comes home with them or not but they need to leave. I had told librarian we've had nothing but trouble with this Girl since she moved here and that I'd move if I could just to get away from her. Pretty sad that I'd be willing to move from my home because of a 13 year old neighborhood girl. Sorry this got so long but I have been stewing about this and finally decided to get it off my chest. Thanks for letting me vent. I just love you guys.
