What the Expert Says:

It is important to work on confidence building.  Point out that she is growing up and sometimes her classmates find they are not growing as fast. It can be normal. Name calling is a type of bullying.  Go on line to check out anti-bullying techniques.  And best wishes.

We all have something to be made fun of. The best thing is to remember to laugh at yourself! If it gets you upset......it just gives bullys more ammo! To ignore the name calling, gives them nothing to  fire back at.

She should not worry about what other people say or think.  Someone is always going to have something bad to say & it makes them feel better. as long as you are healthy dont worry about what people say.  people will be mean to be mean.  and dont let it hurt your feelings. keep you head up and walk strong.
