On the one hand, I would feel irresponsible if I suggest she gets laser treatment, because I would feel as though I'm telling her she's not "good" enough.
On the other hand, I realize my husband's experience with minimal teasing is not common given his condition. A: You husband feels he made the right choice for himself.
She is starting to become socially withdrawn and is afraid of going out in public because occasionally both children and their parents ask about her birthmark.
I have taught her how to respond to this attention.
I'm not saying everyone should fit some limited notion of looks or personality.
There are many things outside of the norm, both physical and mental, which people have to deal with because in lots of cases there's not much to be done.
If your sister begins dating a member of the same family you are, do everything in your power to end it, and avoid the struggles. How are they supposed to remain loyal, and supportive to you while still going on vacations and dinners with the family? You’ll have to sneak around the house searching for what your sister got her boyfriend’s parents for Christmas so you don’t look cheap in comparison.
Every pair of siblings has a different relationship, and a different way of going about things like this.
But there's no doubt, especially for children, that being different is harder.
I don't see why your daughter has to overcome self-consciousness or deal with endless questions and staring because of such a superficial problem, one that has a solution.
Parenting, Dating: I've been divorced for five years, raised a wonderful daughter who is in her fourth year of college, and started dating a wonderful man one year ago.
My daughter took a class from him last year on my suggestion. My daughter had met my boyfriend early in our relationship but was only just recently invited to meet her boyfriend's father—he is a widower of 10 years. I feel like all four of us are getting serious and marriage has been talked about between both couples as well.
Family shouldn’t be interrupted by boyfriends, girlfriends or stupid fights, but this is a darn awkward situation if you ask me.
