Hi Sweetie, I think it might be an idea to speak to his teacher and let him/her know what happened so that they can support if needed at school. Putting the onus on DS will probably only make him more worried that its a bigger deal than it already is. This will have happened to countless kids and I'm sure the school will give him the support he needs. Don't make a big deal out of it - it really is a minor problem and you are making it a larger issue than necessary - stop worrying and pick up the phone or pop into the school for a chat.

DS is 7 and in Y3. Today he was at school swimming lessons and weed in the changing locker while getting changed for the lesson. (I really wish schools would just let kids have a wee when they need one!) Another boy was with him in the locker and has promised not to say anything to the others. But DS is understandably anxious about what will happen if the other boy does tell the others. I've asked him to start thinking up some strategies for dealing with the teasing but so far he has drawn a blank, primarily because thinking about it causes him to flight rather than work out a fight. He is a quiet boy and had a rough time in y1 with teasing so he is quite scared about going back there. Does anyone gave any ideas for how he could nip this one in the bud?
