My 5 1/2 year old daughter (B) has a VERY strong personality. She is not the type to cry when she gets her feelings hurt or someone is mean, she gets mad and is mean back. Then she cries later when no one can see her. She is also very open with everything....what you see is what you get. My husband and I are fully aware of the faults of all our children, but it seems many of our friends are oblivious to their children's. I have witnessed other children in the neighborhood start disagreements with B and be very hateful yet when their parents ask what happened (it's usually "what did B do to you?"), they act sweet and innocent and B gets the blame. A perfect example: This morning B and an older boy were messing around at the bus stop, pushing each other back and forth. B ended up pushed down in the grass and the boy's mother pointed her finger at B and basically said it was her fault, not placing any blame on her son. I of course stood up for my child, but it never seems to do any good. I have no illusions that B is perfect, but she is not always the one to blame. I have said things to my friends and neighbors, but seemingly with no results. What can I do to get this constant assumption by other people that she is the one at fault to stop?
