Childhood can be a difficult time - it's a rare child who doesn't get teased for something or other... I was teased for being tall and can't say I was good at handling it.

Some believe the teasing stops after childhood unfortunately for them it never does. The cruelness never stops. Sometimes names does hurt just as bad as sticks and stones. Thanks for stopping by Julia.

I must say I like your nicely phrased Questionku.

Thank you Julia, the audience never ceases to amaze me. Honesty though I dealt with much more ignorance as a child than as an adult.

My grandson does it a bit and a student of mine. I think the experts can say why but maybe they don't know everything. that is a tough question and I'm sorry you have to live with this! (your real friends won't be sarcastic with you)

It was much worse in my childhood. It took me a while to read something today I could read anything fluently as long as it is in readable English. At times I still stutter but nothing severely. In general most people don't mind my speech but there's always ignorance. Thanks for the encouragement!
