So my DD is is 7 years old almost 8. She is tall for her age but her dad is 6'4. So the other day she was outside riding her bike with friends, then came home crying I tried to talk to her but she would talk to me. So I decided to wait until after dinner to talk to her again that way she had time to cool off.

So at dinner she wouldn't touch her dinner and it was her favorite dinner. So after dinner she took a shower and I sat down with her. She told me that a couple of other kids told her she was fat and that she needed to go on a diet. I told her that she is NOT fat and that those kids were just being mean and trying to hurt her feeling. Well she is still not wanting to eat and i'm at my wits end. I cant seem to get thourgh to her I need advice PLEASE!

This is my daughter, she is NOT fat!

Tell her that is one word that people use to hurt, because they feel bad about themselves. Might as well tell her now, the next is "bitch". People are mean, very mean.

Aw poor kiddo.

I was always 6 inches taller than most girls my age. And was a c cup bra by the 5th grade.

They also told me I was fat when I was actually underweight for my height.. and I believed them for years..

Maybe you could take her to the doctor, have him/her explain that she's not fat.

Some kids are just mean, a product of their upbringing. I was super thin in middle school & high school (I was a dancer). And they called me chicken legs because my legs were so thin! Tell her to forget the haters!!

Boo. I am so not looking forward to this type of thing and raising girls.

I like a pp who said take her to a doc and maybe start in in some self esteem and confidence boosters. There's a lot if cool stuff available on these things on the internet. I know my local rec center does a lot of confidence building workshops for young kiddos.
