I was taking the baby to before and after care the other morning when she was saying how she didn't want to go. They whole ride there she said "I don't wanna go, can't you just take me to school?" this is odd because it had never been a problem before. As I inquired why she didn't want to go she said "Because Raekwon is mean to me"
Now I generally don't get involved with kids beefs especially girls ones. I know too many grown women who hate thier friend 1 day and are best buds the next. Plus I feel like LMS should learn how to handle these situations without me, in life there will always be someone who teases you or isn't nice to you. I explain to LMS that if he's mean tell him to leave you alone or let the teacher know. She says no because hes "much bigger". By this time we are at the after care center... only she refuses to go in the room. Mind you I have no idea who this kid is. The before care room is a place where kids from different ages and schools gather and wait for the bus. So it could be any kid in there, only LMS won't point him out.
I tell her I will talk to the teacher about it because I can't afford to go to jail for beating up some Wu-Tang lovers kid. LMS refuses to let me talk to the teacher because Raekwon is friends with some other kids who are her friends and she doesn't want to come off like a snitch (not her exact words). Now I'm frusterated, I should be headed to work but instead I'm going back and forth with my baby. Nothing I say will make her want to go in the room and she doesn't want me to fix it. I have issues with problems I can't fix. Why bring me a problem if you don't want me to fix it?
Anyway after a couple more minutes of debate I agree to just drop her off at school. We get back in the car and drive to school, we get there super early so we have to wait in the car... while waiting we talk about everything and decide that I'll let the director know about the lil boy that way nobody in her class will know I said anything. So that afternoon I go to talk to the director and I call Raekwon a "little boy", the director say no he's big... O_o, my mind rewinds and I recall seeing a kid who HAD to be a teenager in the before care room... I mean he was too old to be in before care but I figured he had some mental issue. Some how this changed things for me, I can't jack up a kid BUT a teen??? oh yeah I can scare the hell out of a teen, shyt he might need it. He has no business teasing a 6 y/o. The director assures me that I won't have to worry about it anymore so I take him at his word.
Next day LMS is telling me how Raekwon was being nice to her....
