Strange Nicknames for Children – How to Act?

Index

Nicknames have existed since the world is the world, strange nicknames so we don’t even talk. At school time it is the phase of greatest diversity of funny names and nicknames “affectionate”, which can often cause trauma to the child for the rest of his life.

Usually parents have this habit of calling their children, often in a really affectionate way with abbreviations of the name or even with nicknames that have a connection to the child’s physical form, hair and the child’s way of being. But do these nicknames do well? Of course there are exceptions, we cannot generalize, as there are nicknames that really sound affectionate, but others only serve to become a joke and a joke especially if said close to other children. Nowadays known as bullying , the strange nicknames in children in schools have taken strength and cause for legal fights between parents, due to the trauma and damage that can cause the life of a child or adolescent.

The school year begins, teachers introduce themselves and students get to know each other. After a few days, they don’t need much time to get to know each other, they are already playing and giving strange names to each other. Nicknames that often hurt, hurtbecause it is related to some physical or even emotional problem of the child. When they are overweight, they get the nickname fat, 7 ball, tallow ball and many others. If very thin, stick of guts, skinny, skull, and other affectionate descriptions more. If the child wears glasses, he turns the four eyes, if he is too short he is a dwarf, a footer. Some children know how to deal with it very well, taking it as a joke and in my point of view is the best way to not get the nickname, or rather, to get rid of it. The more attention you pay, the more you will be bothered by these strange and uncomfortable nicknames.

But other children not only get upset but end up suffering, they lose the desire to go to school and even create a difficulty to relate to other people. The high esteem is affected and fears appear , fear of how the world is the seeing, how are seeing this child.

How to act when the child suffers from strange nicknames?

We have to take extra care with these games, talk to our children and know what is happening at school and in their daily lives, whenever we notice something different in their behavior. Many times a good conversation at school will solve the problem by calling the parents of the little friend who insists on putting strange nicknames or even offenses and curses.

Care must also be taken when living at home, as we parents often do not realize that a loving nickname for us can cause emotional damage to them as well. Even more when they reach adolescence and die of shame when we call them with their childhood nicknames near friends and girlfriends. Should embarrassment be avoided if we give them a proper name because they embarrass them with strange nicknames?

Children can get away from other children because of trauma

Unless they are in a very intimate, appropriate environment and away from any risk of laughter and jokes and of course your son or daughter is not bothered by the names he has earned since childhood. If you are unable to amicably resolve attacks with strange nicknames on children, with good conversation, your child may need medical help. The accompaniment of a psychologist or therapist can help you to get rid of the constraints and learn to deal with this situation in a more natural way before it affects his personal life.
