What a shame we aren't all attractive, intelligent, sporty, trendy or sociable like the popular kids. Most children feel insecure about who they really are or 'should be' while passing through childhood, puberty and adolescence.
Tell your child: When you criticise yourself for being over- or underweight,too dumb or bright,too short or tall and so on, the bully notices how you react. Then she borrows your tease and uses it against you. If you become upset at the truth, she knows it works and uses it again because she is lazy. If the comment is true and it hurts, e.g. 'You're fat', then change the truth - diet and exercise. If you can't change it, then accept it and joke about it, e.g. being small, homosexual, different race, religion, coloured. And if it is not true, why bother getting upset?
