My son loves school. But doesnt want to participate in any class activities. I get notes every week, that he wont play or be active in P.E. and also I get letters from his class teacher that she struggles with him. He is in speech class, and plays with his hands. He says that his hands are his only friends that understand him. I dont know what to do, and the school makes him out as a "problem child". Does anybody have any suggestions? I am willing to try new things, and get help for him if needed, but the school says there is nothing they can offer.
I ask him why he doesnt play with other kids in P.E. or the activities at school, and his responds is that noone likes him and they dont want to be his friend. This is disturbing to me, he is six years old, kindergarten, and he is struggling. It almost makes me want to change schools, or get him tested for mental issues. I just cry to think that something is wrong. HELP!!

You know my son is in 2nd grade now and he too had these issues at school I was heart broken when they told me he was not meeting Kindergartedn expectations it made me mad c'mon they are only kindergartner's at the time he was stuttering, very fidgety, could not sit still. I didn't want to but I had to take him to one of those doctor's that diagnose him for any mental problems anyway she put him on some medication I did not like it but something had to be done so far so good. So my advice to you is get him checked out and always tell him he is a smart boy talk positive to him, even though we want to do more for them but they are individuals. You guys will be fine.
