Question No. 2: Feet

Our next question is from KayleeBeth. Seems like everyone thinks something of theirs is too big or too small. In this case, she's wondering about the size of her feet.

Dear PLS,
I have kinda big feet,and my friends are always making fun of me. I keep telling them it's rude but they keep on doing it, What should I do?
KayleeBeth, 12

I say don't worry, KayleeBeth. Feet are feet and the only thing that matters is that they get you from here to there. Mine are not exactly small. My mom says that they make me more sturdy!

What about you guys? Anyone with advice for someone who's feeling self-conscious about their feet?

Think pink!

If it really bothers you tell a parent or an adult you trust.

It doesn't matter if your feet are big. If they are gonna make fun of you and not stop, then they are probably not good friends.

I do Tae-kwon-do and you don't wear shoes. My feet are really small and I have really long toes, so I'm usually embarrased, but your unique feet are what makes you who you are. If everyone had perfect feet, everything would be boring!

My feet are big too. The thing is, you are pretty much always going to win in swim races! Anyways my sister has bigger feet than my mom and I'm on my way. But you can have prettier grown up shoes and if you were a size 3, you would have barbie shoes! Just kidding!

Something that i thought was really cool about this question and its comments is that #1. It helped me deal with my own big feet (I have size 10 feet and I am 12)and #2. Grace said that she doest Tae-Kwon-Do and so do I! It can be really imbarresing when you arent wearing shoes to cover your feet. But I love going bare foot even in minus 40 weather. My BFFs Grandma has size 11 feet and my gma has size 10 or 11 too. It may just be genetic. I am just proud of who I am and how God made me. Hopefully you are the same way.

I have a friend who is really small and said I had kinda big feet in front of my whole book club. YIKES! But lots of people had been mentioning to me sorta of the same things. So right then and I said " yea, I've kinda a rest been calling myself Bigfoot" and just laughed it off. Whenever someone makes fun of me I make into a joke about myself and it usually works.

If your friends will ont stop making fun of you maybe they are not actully your friends. Try to embrase the parts of your body that you do like for example, if you are fond of your strong arms wear a tank top.

There are good things about having big feet! It is said that the bigger your feet the taller you will grow. Don't let them pull you down.However if it does get serious you may want to consider finding some new friends.

I have ginormous feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Don't sweat it kid,I'm 11 and wear a woman's 9, no joke. People make fun of you probably because they are jealous. You're probably asking yourself, "what!?"It's true, why else would they make fun of you? I know when I'm jealous that's what I wanna do. You'll be perfectly fine, it's no curse or anything. If they are really bugging you tell a trusted adult and then they'll be in trouble and will wish they didn't make fun of you. Just look on the bright side and hope for the best!:D

I come from a family with HUGE feet. My 18 year old brother is a size 21 and I am a size 11 1/2 and i am only 12. Having big feet is something you just get used to after a while. The truth is I don't even see my feet as big anymore. I still know they are, but they don't feel like it :D and if your "friends" are teasing you after you ask them to stop then maybe they aren't very good friends

It's goodto say to be proud but sometimes you have to realise what you are being proud of. Think of advantages or reasons why your big feet are great. Remember- big feet mean tall gal. Maybe going for a pedicure or getting some pretty shoes would haelp you feel more confident. Love, M x

ok i have the same problem...but girl i learned a LONG time ago...(ok mabey only a year ago)...people who are your TRUE freinds will except you,me and others with big feet,for who we are!Rember this tip KayleeBeth:
People who make fun when it's not fun...only have a big secret and their taking out all the pressure on you!!So don't let our big feet get to your head...because your not alone..."hello!! im one with big feet"...and they need to know if thier picking on you..thier picking on ME!!Say *GIRL POWER IS ON MY SIDE NOT YOURS* when they pick on you again.Then i suggest going home and getting a bubble bath with a godd book(PLS)and a cup of hotchocalate or smoothie until your a human prune...or until someone is banging on the door demanding you get out...'cause that will make you feel even MORE confident!!

My feet have evened out a bit as I got older, but I used to have very duck-like feet and tiny ankles. :) Haha, Just kidding, I still do, and I always loved them. :) Actually, I wouldn't mind if they grew a little bigger.
