How can I deal with people who are mocking my small size?

Dear Short one with no name,

I have had this problem for all of my life, given my quite diminutive stature. The very best way to deal with people mocking your size is to prove that size isn’t what makes a great wizard. Work hard to excel, and eventually, others will be too busy noting how powerful your charms are or how skillful you are on a broomstick to even notice your size. Even if they do still insist on mocking your height, you can simply laugh off the criticism.

At least we don’t have to worry about hitting our heads on low doorways or branches!

Best regards,
