For most kids, height isn’t something they can change, so what do you do if you don’t like how tall or short you are? It might be girls feeling too tall and boys feeling too short. But some really tall boys might not like all that height and some shorter girls might get tired of all the jokes or of feeling like they’re staying little while their friends are growing up.
Parents need to sit down with their children and make group decisions about which activities the children get involved with. If children are involved in too many activities, they end up feeling tired. By cutting back, the children will likely be better rested and less tired. Also, parents won’t feel like the family chauffeur, and they may see an improvement in the activities in which the children do remain involved.
