  • Its mainly because the other girls are jealous, and the boys, well she is taller than them. Things will get better for her. Middle school kids can be so mean and cruel. I see it every single day, I am a teacher in middle school.

  • She needs to know that she is better then what people say and its not her problem when they talk behind her back. They are jealous. She needs to know that she is beautiful. She might need counseling because she is hurt mentally by this. I might even send her to a modeling school to help her with her self esteem. Also she probably great in sports. Anyone who makes fun of another person is not happy with themselves.

  • Oh please tell her that she's not a freak. I developed late (actually at age 38 I'm still waiting to develop SOMEthing! lol) and I remember feeling complete bitter jealousy at the girls who developed a womanly shape early. No one can help it, but she's best ignoring it completely. I was being a total bi*ch about it, and so are her classmates. In the end they'll all be friends when the insecurities die down.

  • Oh to be six feet tall what a beautiful thing. If she doesn't do sports already she should find one. Her size is a huge advantage number 1, and the coaches will love her for it and it will help build up her self esteem. She will also come across other girls her size and bigger. Volleyball, basketball, and swimming are just a few of the sports a girl with that size can really excel at and find a place where she is comfortable. My neighbor girl is 6 feet 1 and on scholarship for basketball, we have another woman in the neighborhood who is 6'5 and went to college on scholarship for volleyball, and another girl i know is 6'0 tall and going to USC to be on the Crew team. All gorgeous women.
