I came home yesterday to a letter from 3 school boys (aged about 7). It read Dear e's mummy we are so sorry for shouting cruel and nasty names at you at the school gates. I marched to school to find out what this was about. Apparently my mil went to school to say hello to my little girl at break time and was talking and saying hi through the school railings. 3 boys shouted fat cow and nutter to her and said you are a crazy woman. My little girl was there and heard everything and was so devastated. She now doesn't want to go out at playtime (she's 5). She did tell the boys that her nanny was ill. I am so angry firstly at the boys but more at the parents. We live in a village and my mil is known. She loves kids and spent her entire life looking after them and she would have been a little upset (if momentarily) The language they used was very adult and I now think it's their parents they've heard this from. My poor daughter is so upset it's making my blood boil. The school is the route between her house and the shops and I'm not going to ask her to change the walking route. Not looking for any advice just need to rant. This came after having some good news they are going to try medication with her and the dementia whilst has got worse is not declining too quickly. They now think she has Alzheimer's rather than ftd. I know it's not fantastic news but its something.
