Everyone has the innate need to fit into any situation or institute that they are part of, this is even greater for children as they do not have the ability to properly express themselves and their feelings and they do not know how to deal with it. The need to fit in is a sense of survival for the child. Being like everyone else gives them a sense of belonging and a sense of safety to the child. Thus it is important that children fit into the kindergarten that they are sent to. If a child is being picked on for being different it causes an excruciating pain. As parents and teachers there is nothing that can be done to magically fix the problem. However there are some things that they can do so that the child can acquire the skills that they need to solve the problem themselves.
Children who suffer from different learning disorders are at most risk of not fitting into the school or with their friends. Learning disabilities do not manifest themselves until the child is in school and starts learning the alphabets and numbers. By the time the problem is diagnosed the child has already gone through a lot of trauma and teasing from other children. When the children approach an adult it is important that the adult understands them and tries to help instead of brushing it off as nothing. This makes the child feel like they are really different and they retreat further back into their shell.
Learning disabilities are not the only reason why a child may feel different or are picked on. Children that are adopted, come from broken or problematic homes are also likely to be picked on and teased. This can cause a lot of mental trauma and sometime the child will not even understand why they have to go through this as it is not even their fault.
