Looking for tips or suggestions. My child has a few good friends but he is overly sensitive. There are a few difficult boys in his class, and for years he’s had issues with them, partially his fault that he has difficulty understanding intent and gets upset over many minor infractions. This causes them to pick on him more… For example, he’s constantly complaining to the teacher about silly things like them cutting the line.

I’m tired of hearing about this all the time and feel that it’s time for the school to crack down on the problem children because every so often the harassment turns into real bullying, and it is just too constant. The school is very receptive, and will work with me.

Before I ask the school to get serious I want to show that my son has really improved in his reactions. I’d love to hear any ideas because we’ve discussed this so many times and he hasn’t changed much.

Is your son on the autism spectrum? He needs to learn more social skills, because the world will not stop being mean just because he doesn't like it. It's much better to teach him resiliency, than to try and make everything nice for him.

Have you role played? Instead of just discussing it, actually act out the scenario so that he gets practice with the proper reaction. That may make the skill stick more

A social skills group could be very beneficial.

Thank you for the responses!
He is not on the autism spectrum, he’s a neurotypical child who is a bit too sensitive.
Role playing is a good idea, the problem is that these issues happen mostly at school, but I will try acting it out with him.
A social skills group is also a good idea, any recommendations of someone really good in the Lakewood area?
Thank you!
