Seven year olds are amazing children. They are right at the age where they are starting to be independent and able to do some things by themselves, but they have not lost the wonder of childhood yet.
A seven year old is normally going to be in first or second grade. This is a very neat age for school as well. The kids are now able to do some reading and are starting in with more complex math. These children are eager learners and a lot of fun to be around.
Some of the problems that seven year olds face include teasing and friend issues. This is an age where children start noticing differences in each other, and at times these differences get pointed out. Children who are somewhat different than their peers are ripe to be teased.
If you see this going on with your child, whether he is the teaser or the one being teased, you need to step in and see what you can do to nip this in the bud. Many parents hesitate to get involved in situations like this because they do not want their child to seem like a baby. However, in today’s society teasing can turn to bullying and that is when things get messy.
Hopefully these issues don’t affect your children too badly, and if they do maybe you are able to easily solve the problems. But, if they continue you may want to consider getting a therapist or psychologist involved to help your child deal with these issues. A few actions to help end these problems when they are small will help keep them from turning into something major later on down the road when there aren’t simple solutions.
