Social issue(4 Posts)
First time poster. Needing advice. My 7 year old has been going through things over the last 6 months. I became a full time student 6 months ago. He has been really struggling with him temper and anger but were all improving changing our parenting styles listening more which is helping his anger tremendously. But! His socialising is difficult he has been well socialised in the past and in the present, but he fights continuously with people, rather than walking away or he is simply defending someone he instantly goes to fighting..weve explained and did paperwork on how others feel, meetings with school, gp etc but when he is around others he is a completely different people he becomes extremely excited, loud and over the top(jumping on then, pushing etc) which i know sounds normal but its way over the top of normative. We do many things together as a family i have continous activities on the go so he isn't glued to a screen! Has anyone ever been through this? Even shed a little advice? Thanks!
Have you spoken to SENCO at his school OP? What did they say?
No advice OP but following with interest! Some of this sounds really similar to what I'm going through with my DS9 at the moment - he cries that he doesn't have any friends, but children seem to avoid him because he gets too over excited and boisterous. With my son, I don't think it's SEN, but perhaps more that he's still developing his social skills, and needs a bit more help with it. I'm planning to speak to his teacher. Let us know how you get on OP!
Sorry for late reply! Spoke to the people in his school they said that they have no concerns but pull me in continously for his behaviour
