My daughter is sixteen and she and another girl were suspended for meeting to fight. They did not fight, but the principal had had it, so they both were suspended. My daughter and the girl have made up, but other kids are calling both of them and trying to stir things up.
Today, the principal called me to tell me the other girl's grandmother called him to say my daughter was still harassing her granddaughter. I am not the type to defend my daughter blindly, but this time she is innocent. She has no access to phones, is home with me, and she is receiving calls with private number.
What annoys me is that the principal is the messenger now for this kid's grandmother. I told him the woman should have called me. I thanked him for his concern, but told him my daughter is being harassed as well.
Is it proper for the principal to be a messenger boy? Am I overreacting? My daughter is being very good for the first time in her life and I want that good behavior encouraged.
