Hey all - I need some advice; and so, I'm once again turning to all of you fellow DIS'ers to add in your two cents worth! DD9 (almost 10) started basketball classes through Parks and Rec 2 weeks ago; she's never really played before, but was PUMPED. It just so happens that she's the only girl in the class - no biggie, she's aware of it, but it's not a huge deal to her. Unfortunately, after 2 classes, she's taking quite a beating in terms of the teasing and being made fun of by the other boys. She hasn't been scared away from class yet, but now they've (the boys) really started making fun of her, how she runs, etc. They're even moking her for drinking out of er Hannah Montana water bottle! I understand what's going on and that it's just a bunch of little boys doing what's natural for them, but I don't know a) how to put a stop to it (it that can e done), and b) how to help DD deal with it. DH and I have explained the "why" behind their behaviour to her as best we can, but being the mama bear that I am, I don't want my baby having the put up with that ****! Help!
