  • My brother has big ears and he was teased about it in school until he reached high school and grew his hair out longer to cover his ears. They weren't real big but they were bigger than everyone else's in the family. Some people have them pinned back through surgery and I'd never do such a thing!

  • I had an x boyfriend who had big ears that stuck out far from his head. Growing up he was always called Dumbo. I personally think big ears on little kids are adorable! But yes kids are cruel and he was definitely made fun of for them.

  • I think I have heard that You are born with the size ears you will always have. They never grow. So what your born with is what you got - for life.........................

    Pretty interesting huh.

  • That's not true bristle . .it's that your ears never stop growing, your eyes are the same from birth.

  • thanks ladies for all your answers my son doesnt have big ears but as with any child if people dont see perfect then the child is made fun of and people dont see how mentaly damaging it is to children just because of the way they were ment to be by GOD,all children are a blessing from GOD and I,ve taught my son not to make fun of people with disabilities or may look a little diff from them because they have feelings too or to call people fat but to be that persons friend too.
    thanks again!!!
