If you have to interact with a person who is drastically short in height, try to act a little more civilized in the presence of your shorter peer.
I’ve come up with a few tips that may help you on how to talk to those who are below five feet, in hopes to save them from humiliation.
How To Talk To Short People
#1. Never Let Them Realise About Their Short Height
Never realise a shorter person that he is a short in height than you. So if you meet someone shorter than you, treat them as if you are treating someone who is of the same height as you.
Rather than saying, “Hi, you’re so small and sweet, just like my younger brother Darwin,” you could make a normal gesture like, “It’s a pleasure to meet you.” It may take you some time to get used to, but if you treat them as normal people, they would meet you with more enthusiasm.
#2. Never Treat Them As Aliens
If you meet a person who is really very short, don’t pick him up, unless he asks you to do so. Don’t behave as if you are meeting a different world creature. They are human beings just like you and me, the only difference is they have biologically shorter height.
For example, if you meet a giant person who picks you up as if you were a magical world creature and behaves like he is meeting with an alien, how would you feel at that time?

#3. Help Them Out Rather Making Fun of Them
If you see a short person not being able to reach things on top shelves in a supermarket and if you want to tell him how cute or funny it is to see him standing on tip-toes, struggling to grab that damn thing.
The better option is to help him get that thing that he or she is trying to get for the last few minutes. Rather making fun of his or her helpless situation.
#4. Short People aren’t Armrests
Understand one thing that short people don’t like being your personal armrest just because they are conveniently equal height with your elbows.
What about your armrests? Oh, come on, will you allow strangers resting their arms on your toddlers? Same pinch here.
#5. Don’t Call Them Your “Mini-Me”
Don’t ever call them your “mini-me.” Though he or she is miniature in size, what makes you think that they want to be mini anything, especially a mini you?
Because this self-praise of your height is offensive, and it’s only warranted if they say they wish they were exactly like you.

#6. Don’t Suggest Them Anything Based on Their Height
You can ask them about their hobbies and interests before suggesting they should try something just because of their height. No need to tell them they should start gymnastics, and suggest them to join the rowing team because of their size.
Rather than suggesting your unwanted advice, try to know each other before you can start making decisions for one another.

In the end, I would sum up with this general tip that act normally around those people who are shorter than you are, because they are also human beings and have similar sentiments as we have.
So don’t consider them Aliens, they are as same as you and me.
