Whining Wednesday

So yesterday the girls both had softball games at the same time. Tony didn't want to go with us so Trevor didn't really have anyone to play with. He saw some boys and went to try and play with them. I was noticing that they were kind of trying to run away from him. :sigh: Later he's playing with some other boys. I look over and they are poking him with sticks. I yelled at them to stop. They said that he doesn't go to their school? I was like WTH, how old are you?? Kid says 6. I sad he just turned 5, he doesn't even go to school yet! I asked him if he would be mean to a boy that was smaller than and he said no. I said he's smaller than you in AGE so you need to be nice. So they run off and Trevor sits with me for a few minutes. Not too long after that they are playing together again. Then I look over and Trevor is kicking one boy and punching another???? So I run over there and that same boy says he punched me. UGH so made him come back over to the chair (kicking and screaming all the way) and told him he had to stay by me for the rest of the game. OMG he was screaming and crying and carrying on. Finally I couldn't take it anymore and packed everything up and told him we were leaving. He cried behind me all the way to the car. Called Scott and told him he'd have to bring the girls home. Trevor cried almost all the way home.

So I just don't understand why he always seems to get picked as the one to be mean to when he's in a group of kids. Does he show some hint that he is weak somehow? It really sucks because he is as tall as a 7 year old but he's JUST 5 so he's doesn't really understand what they are doing when they are being mean to him. I hope this isn't a little preview into the future of what it's going to be like when he goes to school.Pin It

Maybe part of the problem is that they expect him to behave in a way that corresponds to how old he looks, rather than how old he is? I've heard this can be a problem.

Good luck figuring it out.
