Psychological Problems Facing Public School Students
Children Cope: There's A Whole New Breed of Issues
Facing Today's Student
In today's public school
system, children need emotional support now more than ever
before. All the rules seemed to have changed, and many
of the "ways things used to be"...simply don't exist for
today's public school students. Peer pressure,
bullying, substance abuse, and many other problems that
students face have been escalated to an entirely new level.
Compared to issues facing children today, many parent's
"wild" or "harried" experiences in the good old days, were
"a walk in the park" by today's standards. Of course
some experiences we can't help our children avoid, but
parents can prepare themselves to help school age children
deal with problems when they arise. How? By
educating themselves as much as possible on the
socialization issues and obstacles that children face daily
within the public school systems.
These pages are designed to provide parental resources for
socialization issues your child might be facing in school.

Their problems with other kids.
