First time I have ever done this but I need help.
On Christmas day my grandson aged 9 and I were in his bedroom. He said 'I would be ok if I had a brain,' I laughed and asked 'what have you done with it?' He answered by saying his friends tell him he talks dross and say he is stupid.
He is an intelligent, friendly, likeable, sporty boy. He has always been interested in how things work, engines, mill wheels etc.
When he and I have gone away for a few days he is funny, enthusiastic and extremely good company.
I have written a story for him every week since he was 5 and he has an extensive vocabulary. He reads well and is very expressive.
The most worrying thing about it was he ran into another room then dashed back to say ‘don’t tell anyone that’s our secret.’
In a few weeks I will write a story involving this sort of situation but at present am at a loss as to how to end it and offer him a solution.
I didn’t feel it was just an off the cuff comment, he was upset. I don’t want my lovely confident grandson to be bullied or excluded by his friends.
What can I do?
