So was talking to my oldest last night and not even sure how it came up but he goes I'm not cool. Back story he had a cleft and still has repairs to go so he looks and sounds different. Never been picked on directly for it but certain kids harp on asking same question "what's wrong with your lip" when it's the same kids to be that's not being curious unless you are forgetful because he tells you year after year. Anyway because of this and other things in his iep he gets counseling in school and is in a social skill group but it stung a little last night to here him say he isn't cool.
He has friends and I know there are jerks in his class and grade but he has core friends who don't care what he looks like or talks like but his going into middle school next year (same school same kids we have k-8 schools) and I know that the preteen years can be tough so momma bear is coming out some.
