Special Needs and Special Needs

Austin has been having such a time with one child in particular at school.  He makes fun of Austin and calls him names, laughs at him and hurts his feelings.  Austin comes home crying, a lot.  It is really tough to know what to do since this child also has special needs.  I continue to tell Austin to ignore or walk away when this child teases him or bothers him and most of the time he does but sometimes he is in a position where he cannot.  I explained to Austin that this child has his own challenges and he must be more patient and understanding since the child cannot control some of these behaviours.  It is a challenge everyday and I continue to tell Austin to tell someone if he is upset, although he still does not do this all the time.

I continue to support Austin and give him a big hug when he is upset and tell him, it has nothing to do with him, it is not personal.  I hope that the situation will improve and Austin will continue to be patient and may be there will be no more tears.

*HUGS*  All the best!
