Mean Girls

If any have watched the movie "Mean Girls" it portrays how mean these creature can be. I think back to my days as a teenager and ya we could be mean, but not any where near the level that the teenage girls of today take it.

I am seeing this first hand with my daughter who is afraid to go to school, to be home alone or even be shopping by herself all because of one girl. The irony of it all is that they were friends. My daughter found out that she was talking about her behind her back, confronted the girl who of course denied it. This was confirmed to my daughter once again by a very reliable source so my daughter told the girl she didn't want to be her friend. Now the scorned girls as she sees it has been threatening to send people out to our place, or attack my daughter at school. This MEAN GIRL has recruited about 6 other girls that have told my daughter that she messed with the wrong bitch and is going to pay for it.

I have spoken with the RCMP on this matter, my daughter is to meet with them today. The RCMP have told us a couple of routes to take and in the end if this girl breaks them in any way even by having someone do the dirty work for her there will be charges laid to those that do the dirty work and her for getting them to do it. It has even got to the point that my daughter is thinking of moving away so that she can go to school, get her grade 12 and Graduate.

This girl was phoning our house and my daughters cell very 10 - 15 minutes from her home, her place of work and her boyfriends place. If she calls again from her place of work I am going to call her boss and have a chat. I was trying to avoid that to protect my daughter as I didn't want to give this girl another reason to go after her, I am at the point that I will call and hope she gets fired on the spot.

I did find out about call trace *57 this puts a trace on the call after you do this to the same number 5 times it is disconnected by SaskTel. The girl has started calling from blocked id, my daughter is afraid to answer her phone if she doesn't know the number. Today I am having her cell phone number changed.

I don't remember ever being this mean as a teenager.

Corinne, This is undoubtedly one of the worst things that girls do to other girls. How absolutely awful for your daughter to have to go through this. This actually happened to me when I was in high school and now I lecture about this in the Women's Studies classes I teach. Unfortunately, there seems to be no really good answers to this problem. One mother, a friend of mine, and her daughter decided that it had become too dangerous for the daughter to go to school. The daughter was in her senior year in high school, but the mother home schooled her the rest of the year. Although they should not have had to take these steps, the decision worked out well. I hope you can find a solution that works for your daughter and you!
