      • How do you handle it when your child is planning on competitive sports activities in high school (varsity football, baseball, basketball and competitive cheer/dance team, etc.), but you know they won’t be physically able to compete on that level yet, they haven’t realized that yet? Do you just let it go or do you give them the reality check and tell them there is a big chance they won’t make the team?

      • How do you handle it when your child comes home upset because his friends are leaving him behind on the playground because he can’t keep up and he’s feeling left out. I know his friends are probably not doing it intentionally but what do you suggest that isn’t just his mom or dad fighting his battles for him?

      • My four year old came home from preschool and said one of his classmates made fun of him by calling him small and a baby. I know he is in for many years of this since children can be quite torturous towards one another, but what can I tell him to say as a response to the other kids? Also how do I explain to him that he has dwarfism?
