  • Sometimes seems to feel the burden of the world on his or her shoulders.

  • May also think that he or she is "different" and disliked by parents, teachers, and peers.

  • Believes that his or her class work or personality will never be acceptable.

  • Often teased by other children.

  • Often a loner.

  • Seems to need a friend.

  • Usually relates easily to caring adults.

Please Note
We are labeling behaviors, not children! For the sake of convenience, we will describe behaviors with terms such as The Whiner or The Interrupter.

Never use such labels when talking to—or about—children! Doing so could cause many new problems and seriously damage the teacher-student or parent-child relationship.
