My dd1 recently has started getting comments from kids at her school (ones she knows and older kids) who say she looks like a boy. This is obviously making her v upset but I just don't know what to do about it. Tbh she doesn't have very 'girly' hair (it is quite unruly and curly and therefore quite short) We have tried hairclips but they always seem to go missing. It is also obvious that she's a girl because she wears a skirt to school so these comments are really pointless and hurtful. I don't want to go ott with dressing her in very girly clothes (outside of school) but I don't want this to turn into an issue. Any ideas???
Just to say I looked very much like a boy when I was about 5 (had short hair and often wore boyish clothes) I was very self conscious about it to the point that I can remember refusing to go and meet some new children that had moved in down the road in case they thuoght I was a boy. When I found out they had short hair too I was down there like a shot! No advice really, just maybe try and grow her hair if possible.
