My son is 5.5 and starting kindergarten in the fall. He is almost 2 inches shorter than his sister (who just turned 4). Last year the kids had started to pick on him in pre-k and we changed to a church school for unrelated reasons. But he will be in public school for kindergarten. What can I tell him to say or do? He is so sensitive about it already. He is constantly trying to prove he is fastest or strongest, maybe compensating? I almost think the kids do it more because of his reaction of getting sad or angry. Also, I need to get him to be happy with the way he is, but nothing I try seems to help. Suggestions?Answer Question

There are many good books on bullying and teasing which would be helpful for him and you to read together and then talk about it. Here are some http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=8 Read the description and reviews to see which ones look best for you. He will need to find the solution that works for HIM, but I would check back with him periodically to see what is or is not working.
