I hate that she is dealing with this so young! I want her to know she's beautiful the way she is.

Yeah I hope dd doesn't go through that. I love her curls and I don't want her to want straight hair :-/

Big sister to be!

Tell her the kids are probably jealous and are trying to make themselves feel better because they don't have curly hair.

We are black, so she just has regular black girl hair.

 Kids are mean. I had trouble with my hair, too.

 I deal with that too, it sucks. :( My dd is the only biracial kid in an otherwise all-white school, so of course she's been singled out for it. Kids in her class always make fun of her curls. And I think they're absolutely beautiful, so it just breaks my heart to see her cry about it. I wish she could see how awesome her hair is, and how special it is to be unique.

Tell her her hair is beautiful! My SD has curly hair and she empraces it. (The brat won't let me shave it off and put it on my head grrr :p) also show her how people will PAY to have their hair permed so it is curly.
This is my SD. People always tell her how they want her hair. I have paid a few times for a perm...though mine always turn to waves not curls :(
