So my kindergartner came home with some scratches that I'm 99% sure could not have been self inflicted.
They are at the wrong angle and too deep - I tried to do it to myself and I couldn't and I'd hurt too much to continue. They are also staggered in a half moon at the start and the end of the the scratches. The half moon is the right size for one of her classmates so I'm not worried about an adult being the cause.
When queried about this last night she initially identified someone who has been a social bullying problem in the recent past. Part way though our discussion, she changed her story and said it was self inflicted. And then she flipped back again.
Today we talked to the caregivers. The accused denies it. None of the adults in her care noticed it happen, but there was an argument with the accused yesterday.
Now this evening she's recanted again, but has also indicated she is afraid of getting someone in trouble.
If the accused didn't it do it, someone else must have. Any suggestions on how to get the info out of her? Or is the well poisoned?
