My son is ugly

 Of course hes not, but thats what he thinks :( My son went to the eye doctor yesterday and found out that he needs to wear glasses. He busted out crying telling me that he does not want to wear glasses and that people will make fun of him :/ he was being picked on at the beginning of the year and is now afraid that he will be picked on even more. My heart breaks for him. I told him that I wore glasses when I was 5 yrs old and that a lot of people wear glasses. I started picking out the boys in his class that wear glasses and asked him if they get picked on and he said no. So I told him that no one would pick on him and if they did that I would find out about it and definitely be at the school talking to his teacher. I have told him over and over that he is beautiful inside and out and that I love him no matter what, but he is still really down about it. Any thoughts of how I can get him more excited about wearing them? We will pick them up on Friday.

I started pointing out the other kids in his class that have glasses and asked him if they get picked on and he said no.

 Glasses are very much in right now.  My 10 year old just got them and he loves to wear them.  But, then he's never been one to worry over what others think.  It took my dd a while to get there, but she usually wears contacts.
