Children who are emotional have little ability to panic or tolerate things.
Question: A 9 year old boy is a class 4 student and is very emotional. If something happens in school, he feels bad and starts crying which spoils his whole day. I tried many times to convince him so that he could mix with other kids but nothing happened. What I do?
Answer: As you mentioned your child is emotional. He sometimes feels helpless. In such a situation, you have to first understand how emotional he is so that his problem can be solved. Children who are emotional have little ability to panic or tolerate things. This can also happen to your child because he is very young but he has to be handled from this age. Meet with the child’s teachers to find out the problem of the child. Give full support to the child from your level so that he can become mentally and emotionally strong and can bear things.
don’t ignore the problem
If the child has such a problem then do not ignore him. By doing this, the child will be scared for a few days, but later the feelings will end from inside him and gradually he will become insolent with anger. When the child is telling something related to school, listen carefully to him. From his words you have to decide how to convince him and take care of him. If you take the help of school teachers and play therapist along with yourself, then you will see improvement in the child.
