DS is spending the week at Vacation Bible School. Today he comes home and says the kids were saying he is fat. I was completely baffled by this. Why? Because he's NOT even CLOSE to being fat. He's a good weight and height, and trust me, I make sure he eats healthy stuff, with a limit on sweets and stuff.
I understand that kids name call. I could understand (not condone mind you- but would understand it) if older kids were calling him a baby or making fun of his clothes or something - typical stuff. But fat? It doesn't even make sense to me.
How would you tell your child to react to this?
DH and I have given him advice and assured him that basically what they said was totally unfounded and uncalled for, just curious what others would do/say (or tell him to do) in this situation.
Oh yeah, he doesn't like to get kids in trouble, so he's not willing to tell an adult that's around when it's happening. Advice please.
