Two kinds of kids are rejected by their peers or isolated and ignored by them.
Rejected kids are those with psychological and behavioral problems. They’re aggressive, disruptive, and poorly socialized. There’s a strong likelihood their behavior will continue through adulthood. The situation doesn’t improve for them if they move to another school.
Neglected kids, on the other hand, are ignored. They improve with intervention and a change in school placement. What’s going on? There may be a learning, language or visual processing problem or a developmental disorder underlying the behavior that causes your child to look different from other kids.
Think about your family. Is there an adult relative who had the same issues as a child and struggles to meet the demands of adulthood?
Help your child to make a healthy adjustment to life. Have them evaluated and implement interventions so they can be successful.
