We cheer at a great cheer gym, but their is one girl there who has bullied both of my girls (and other girls) at the gym for over 4 years now. I have tried everything I can think of to make it better. Sometimes it gets better for a few weeks, but then it all starts up again. After another incident of bullying I lost it. I felt like a mother Bear going into protective, attack mode. I went out onto the floor while the Coach was conditioning the girls and confronted the girl. She lied & downplayed the incident. But, now I feel awful for the way I handled it. I should never go out on the floor & interrupt practice. In addition I should not have confronted a child in that manner. Although she can be very cruel she is only 13 years old. I did apologize to the Coach after. She understandably did not seem happy with me. I am a teacher and would also be very upset if someone interrupted my classroom & acted like this. I am embarrassed about how I handled it, but all I know to do now is apologize and learn from my mistake.
