I’m just over 6 ft and him only 14. I hate my height because of the attention it causes. In science [where I am right now] there is one particular boy. Everyday I have science he’s there. Throwing things at me and telling me to ‘go back to the jungle’ is his new personal favourite. He’s now scared most of the class, who didn’t like me anyway, into hating me. They laugh along with his stupid comments. If I say anything back he always has something to say. Now you may say I'm taller than him so I can fight back but stupidly i’m not. He’s a few inches higher than me. D: . I can’t tell a teacher. That would make things worse and my parents would just tell the school. I’m not changing school as I have just started getting ready for my GCSE’s.
What should I do?
hi. im 17 and im 6'4''. kids at school also tease me about my height. calling me a freak. although I know they are only joking, at times it is inappropriate and hurtful. my twin brother calls me a freak also, but he is taller than I am! he says it is because you "never" see girls that tall
anyways I have found a few ways to shut them up.
if asked the original "hows the weather up there?" I casually say "its raining" then spit on them. kinda gross, but it is VERY effective.
if being insulted by some midget kid I always ignore them until they stop then say "im sorry. can you repeat that? I couldnt hear you all the way down there..." made him shut up!
This will solve your problem. When ever someone sez something negative to always reply with WHAT? wHEN they repeat themselves reply with WHAT? Look at them like there stupid. Keep saying WHAT? AS MANY times as they say the negative comment. After about 5 or 6 times they will get fraustrated and stop and they will look dumb(hopefully a teacher will hear them). If they say you heard me say I'm sorry could you repeat yourself. I hope this helps. Always smile when they something negative, don't let them win be tough. If they see weakness they will pounce BE STRONG! Please update us with your progress.
You'll probably think this is crap advice.. but I'm quite small (5 foot 6) and i'm 16 years old. A few months ago, I got bullied about my size over msn. I told one of them to come fight me one on one. Would he do it? NO. Because they are scared on their own. Just stick up to them and show that you're tough and don't care what they think. They don't do it anymore.
im just over 5 foot. I would kill to be tall!
but I know how it feels, and its not something you can help at all. if he's taller than you, he has no reason to talk .make sure he knows that. also, whats wrong with him? does he have a big nose? glasses? braces? crooked teeth? is he fat? find something to make fun of him back for, and he'll stop really fast!
Well if it makes you feel any better. There is a girl that is 15 and she is only like 4'7'' or something. She cant even touch the floor when she sits on a chair! She hates it.
Also their is a 8th grader and he is about the same height as you also, but people think its cool. So I think your lucky. Just my opinion though. Good Luck.
look im short im 23 and only 5'6'' but u know what i love my height. ur tall so love ur height. when tall people have bad things to say to me i tell them that after i kickem in da nuts we will be the same height. so when short people bother u just hit em in the top of their little heads til they get the point
Every Time people say something bad to you about your height just say im proud to be tall and you will all be jelous when we are older lol i got tall young too but im a average size now when you get older the bullies will grow too and proberbly be the same size as you
hope ive helped
Also that kid id probably insecure that he is being compared to you... he feels like he needs to act bigger than you, I guess you could say.
thanks alot. i will definately try that. i'll tell you if it changes or not :)
thanks again xx
