His self esteem went to the ground after coming back from his first social at school. He did dance and had fun, but told me later how he really didn't have fun, he basically faked it. Told him how I understand how he must feel but it won't last long....etc...just saying all positive things to try to make him feel better but it just got worse since he tells me I am saying all this because I'm his mom.
Any good books or something I can tell him to help him?

Thanks for all your answers but he is in sports, he's the freshman quarterback and just finished wrestling. He doesn't like basketball all that much. It really hit him hard last night when at the social, he just towered over everyone. Dancing with the girls was a bit uncomfortable and a few actually told him no that he was too tall. I know he'll love this later, but it was just so sad to hear him talk the way he did about having to fake having a good time. We all know how kids can be cruel and the comments some of them make, and having to hear it every two seconds can be a bit bothersome. Again, thanks for your input.
