Heather, nAs I stated in my last email, I recently joined this site and it has been helping me so much. My son who is 5 and a half has been made fun of by other children even since preschool. Its terrible how mean children are to other children. I have explained to my son that we all have something regaurdless if its on the inside or out. I teach him to be kind to everybody and accept others for how they are, I try to tell him to ignore those who laugh or think his food is gross, but believe me its harder I think for me than it is him.
