Firstly, take a deep breath and try to think about why the other child might be bullying your daughter-is something missing in her life. Remember the old phrase "keep your friends close and your enemies closer," sometimes people bully because of self esteem issues. Could you help the other child change their actions by asking her/ him how she is and showing her kindness. Sometimes it takes them by surprise and can work miracles. Otherwise try to give your daughter some strategies for dealing with it. Talk her through what is happening and suggest what she might do to change things! Not always easy as emotions run high when it is your child. Hope that is helpful.
