Help for a child to integrate

Posted By Anonymous on Jan 27, 2013 at 5:42AM

I have been struggling for the past 2 years with my 5 year old son. He is unable to integrate with other kids. He always plays alone during breaks and I hardly find anyone who accept to come over to our place as a play date. He tries so hard and they always put him down. He asks a lot of questions usually when he plays with the kids which annoys most of his friends and sometimes acts younger than his age. He still cries at school when he doesnt like the food or someone says something rough to him. Recently, his best friend told him that he hates him and that made him so sad, he stopped eating. Sometimes it appears to me that at 5 the kids almost know what they are doing and my kid is still naive. He is bright at school though but Im afraid he wont keep the same energy if he keeps being put down and taken advantage of. I dont know how to address that. I tried with the school but they do not care much about integrating him with the rest of the class from a social perspective.H eis not bullied, but he is avoided and kids say not so nice things to him when he tries hard to be around them. i am so worry about my little boy. any suggestions?
