Reading on Grade Level

Dear Teacher



(page 2 of 3)

 

Does My Kid Fit In?

How can I tell if peers are accepting my middle-school son? He spends a lot of time in solitary pursuits.

Simple observations should answer your question. Are friends calling him? Is he calling others or participate in outings? Does he interact with neighbors his age? Does he play sports or belong to scouts or clubs? What does he say about having friends? Some introverts are happy with just one or two good friends. What do teachers say about his socialization at school?

Finally, are excessive online activities limiting personal contact with peers? Middle school can be a tough time, with peer pressure and fitting in a challenge. Casually discuss this with your son and find out if it’s a problem for him. It may not be.
