sadiegirl Posted November 29, 2011 Share Posted November 29, 2011 I have two boys that we have always homeschooled. This year we made the decision to enroll in a small Christian school(approx. 115 students). My oldest is a more of an introvert where as the youngest is a bit more of an extrovert. In fact, he has adjusted to school quite easily where as my oldest has virtually no friends. From day one, the oldest says he has nothing in common with the kids(he hunts, loves country music and has a southern accent...true country boy!) He has been made fun of...teased and basically, the boys in his class tell him it is just easy to pick on him because he's him! Today, he told me that he had $20 stolen out of his wallet in P.E. A little over a month ago, he had a pair of Nike Shox stolen out of his locker in P.E. He wants to quit school where as my youngest likes school, attends the activities, has a girlfriend. We are moving after this year to Raleigh, North Carolina and I thought going to a small private school would give them the experience so when we go there that they could try private, Christian or publice. At this point, I don't want to go Christian...these boys call him stupid, hit him, tell him to go kill himself and call him gay(which he is not but that should not matter period!) He says he just tries to be nice, and friendly but seems to be an target for their humor. He is extremely bashful around the girls despite the fact that he is extremely funny(has my husband's wittiness) and very cute. He says that all these kids have had 9 years of school to learn how to deal with the crap kids throw at each other...he hasn't had that experience and his self-confidence is blown. He loves to hunt but all these boys love team sports(which he has absolutely no experience at so they make fun of him for that...) any advice?
