The librarian is singling out my daughter: Advice?

Friday my 8yr old daughter came home from school and told me the librarian (during media center) asked her name then told her to go sit at the very back of the media center at a table pretty much away from the entire class as she accused her of coming home and “telling lies” on her the week prior. My daughter said the librarian then stands and makes an announcement to the entire class that is going forward, if anyone decides they want to go home and tell lies to their parents on her, then she will separate them, and they will sit alone for the period. I assume she says this because the week prior I messaged my child’s actual teacher and asked about clarity on a situation that my child said took place with other kids while in Media Center that day…the teacher told me she wasn’t aware of the situation but would find out more and let me know. Apparently, she went and spoke with the library teacher, so the librarian felt justified in approaching my daughter. Am I overreacting that I want a meeting with the principal and librarian and also that I want her to apologize to my daughter in front of the class just like she called her out/humiliated her? What would you guys do? Help mommas!

I don’t know if you’re speaking of a Public Library or a School Library. At any case time for you to Show Up and have a conversation with Her Superior.

I would do the same thing. There is no excuse for that kind of behavior.

Not overreacting, this warrants a meeting with the principal and librarian. In no way should your child be shunned like this.

You are your child’s best advocate. I would definitely talk to the Principal. My thought is that there is way more going on with this Librarian than you know about.

Not overreacting, call her out again. Go to principal and then stand there during library while she apologizes

I’d get I’m on the phone to speak with the principal and request a meeting with these teachers. Not handled correctly at all!

Yes a meeting is in order. Absolutely. You aren’t overreacting she is out of line.

Calmly ask for a meeting. Calmly meet with them and yes she should apologize because at this point it can change your child’s outlook on school all together! Good luck!

Have a meeting with the principal- as a parent you have the right. There’s no valid reason for her to single out your baby that way. She’s an adult and if she has a problem she could speak to you, the teacher, or principal.

Meeting with principal and the librarian. Be prepared to hear that your child lied again. Come with documents of what your child said happened and when.

Oh hell no! You go to the principal and the school board if necessary. This person is intimidating children and teaching them not to confide in their parents. What is she trying to hide? If she has a problem she needs not discuss it with you, not bully your child. I’d demand her resignation
