Young kids are insecure and impressionable and if you seperate one of them from their herd they tend to be harmless and their insecurities start to show. I wouldn't worry about it much if I were you because these kids often reach an age and they grow from being a part of the pack to being fearful of being ridiculed by the younger ones. Its an endless cycle I tell ya. You sound like a very charming and intelligent person, I'm sure your social life is very vibrant and colorful, dont let any youngsters alter your impression of yourself.

Much love,
