Having a bit of a panic.
DD2 -middle one in year 7 got an email tonight along the lines of everyone from your old school hates you, you are stuck up blah blah.DD was the only one who got into grammar.Actually she has several primary friends she socialises with often but not the sender of the e mail.(obviously)
This girl said that another girl had said she was posh etc (I wish
Anyway I know I should be more grown up but DD was upset, not first horrible email from this girl, and so I replied
Polite but firm...
"This is Mrs ********, *****'s mum.If you continue to send these emails I will contact your school with a complaint of cyber bulling.I have printed off all the emails and the replies .You are welcome to as well etc.
Please do not do this again. I wish you well in your new school etc."
Within 10 seconds grovelling reply of apology which I thanked them for and said no ill will and wished them well.
My worry is that I went too far in corresponding with a child.
Should I have left it.........
