Child being picked on because he is short
My son, a 2nd grader, is very short for his age. He gets it honest as neither his mother nor myself are taller than 5'7". Though he does not appear to be lacking in confidence, he is beginning to get picked on in school. He asked me what he should tell other kids when they ask him why he is so short?
Does anyone have any advice that I can give him? Anything I can tell him to say when that question comes up again from a schoolmate? I told him to blame it on his dad, but am wondering if there are other suggestions out there. Thanks for any insight.
