Children rogue: psychological work with the problem

Each team has a popular children and not very popular. There are children active, sociable, and there are quiet loners. Some were satisfied with a secondary role in the classroom, while others suffer from this situation, but do not know how to change it.

Some children are so eager to be in the spotlight of classmates, to take a leadership position, not knowing how to behave in this case in accordance with their aspirations, choosing inappropriate behaviors that achieve attention "with a minus sign" - become an object of ridicule and contempt. And these guys are actively rejected by their peers - a phenomenon that is unfortunately a frequent and hard changing.

Psychological aspects of the problem of rejection

Own observation, different buy essays for college, biographies of various people and examples from literature suggest that, in any children's collective is inevitably exist popular kids and children rogue. Sometimes outcast children simply ignored, or dislike passively or tolerated, sometimes they find the defenders. But other less lucky - they are disliked active. They become objects of ridicule and bullying by classmates. Let's try to understand the nature of this phenomenon, as the rejection of one or more team members.


Each drama implies a clear division of roles. In a situation of persecution there is always the instigators, their victims and, of course, the persecutors - the bulk of the children, which under the leadership of the instigators bullying victims. Sometimes in the class have neutral observers. Observers do not differ from the persecutors, as their silence encourages persecution, and not impeding it.

It happens that among classmates there are defenders of the victims. Sometimes the appearance of the defense is able to radically change the situation (especially if there are several defenders or with their opinion are considered the class) - the majority of the pursuers leave outcast alone, the conflict comes to naught in the beginning.

The origins of hostility

The problem of any group of children is not only active rejection or persecution of one of the members of the group (class) - this phenomenon is noticeable to others, and therefore it is easier to keep track of, and try to stop at the very beginning. But the fact that many children are very difficult to enter into a collective, to feel comfortable and confident among their peers.

Bad relationships with classmates can cause underachievement. The child has no desire to go to school, he can develop a variety of neurotic and even mental disorders. The worst thing is that regular abuse can trigger a suicide attempt or an attempt on someone from his pursuers. Once quiet and scored eighth grader Stanly brought to school a penknife, with which wounded constantly pestering him John.

If the child is not hurt, but do not accepted (for example, the last selected to the team, or others are not happy with his success), he feel not less alone and less bad than the victim of the active hostility by their peers. He thinks: "If one day I do stop to go to school, no one will notice."
