    Default I mind for you

    Hi

    What does it mean when somebody says to another person: I mind for you.

    Does it mean: I care about you.

    It depends on the context- it could, but how about this:
    A: I don't mind.
    B: Well, I mind for you.

    Well actually the girl said: I don’t much mind not
    being in the scenes.’

    The teacher replied: I mind for you.

    So what does it mean in this context?

    In that context, it means that although the girl doesn't mind (doesn't care, isn't bothered) that she's not in the scenes, her teacher is going to mind (care, be bothered) on her behalf.

    Her teacher obviously thinks that the girl should mind.
