Girl Drama
I have five girls in my after care program that can't seem to get along. I have split them into different groups and they always seem to mess with each other. All the girls have been talked to by the principal about bullying and their parents were involved but they continue to bother each other and say rude comments. I don't know what to do next.

When you say that you separated these girls into different groups do you mean that you moved them far from each other? Just because they are in different groups does not mean they will not come into contact with each other. I think you should try to make sure that they do not go near each other, and if they do then you need to set out some type of consequence for them. If they say something rude maybe they will lose playing with their favorite toy or they cant use their phone. You could also try to figure out the root of the problem. Maybe pull each one aside individually and ask them what the problem is.

I agree. Applying consequences to the girls may be the only way to get them to stop, or at least get one or two to do so. It may be necessary to sit the girls down for mediation with a councilor so that they can understand what they should be doing instaed.

I feel this is the best solution, separate the girls and ask individually.

Instead of separating them, i would put them all together and figure out what the problem is. Have them talk it out like human beings. Let them know being mean won't be tolerated. Also try to use positive praise. Praise the students who are kind to one another. Make it "cool".

If the principal, parents, and everybody has been involved in this process, then the only thing that you can do is continue to document the behavior and treat it accordingly when it occurs. If they keep doing it and going against the rules, they have to be punished accordingly.

Try to find the cause of the problem. Also, maybe try understand both sides of the students and find a way for both students to see the other side of the students. I'd hope if they understand each other, then maybe the behavior will cease.

Since the administration and parents have been notified of the behavior, I would document the behavior and follow the agreed upon procedures regarding proper discipline. Depending on the situation, I would also have the guidance councilor intervene and sit the girls down to discuss matters in a way that is not accusatory and maybe even have the girls engage in supervised team building activities.

If one of the other solutions have worked, they need to have consequences for continually not following the rules, it may go as far as suspension. They have to get the point that their behavior is not tolerated.

Definitely, document the situation and keep parents and administration in the loop. I would separate the girls but also try and have conversations with them. I would explain how hurtful bullying truly is and teach them lessons on moving forward and avoiding drama. However, if all else fails, document! Bullying should not be ignored.

Separating to girls will only make them want to bother each other even more. Since a meeting with the principal and the parents did not resolve the situation there needs to be consequences set in place because as of right now its making it seem like the bullying is okay. With consequences set in place this will show the girls that they should not be bullying each other.

Parents are some of the strongest people to get change to happen. Getting parents more involved to help the situation move along faster is a good way to get the students to stop bullying.

I would say that these girls are not responding to this form of punishment and something else should be tried. Maybe make them write a paper highlighting nice things about one of the other girls, or apologize in front of everyone when they make a rude comment. I don't know their age but maybe taking away a more preferred activity will entice them to stop bullying one another.

Oh, girls will be girls is a saying for a reason! Girl drama is not something that can be ignored. Since you have tried everything else, I would get with your principle and start tallying. For every rude comment - no matter whether it was to offend or defend - it is a certain amount of minutes of quiet time for all of them in separate corners.

I would get a planner or something where you can document their behavior and provide a time stamp of when these events are occurring. This will allow you to have a case of information to provide the principal with if the problem persists.
