Well, count me among the 13%. I spent my elementary school years either being ignored, or being picked on. I could never figure out what was going on; I was wildly reactive to everything, and got nailed for that too. I am still something of a social misfit. I struggle with first time meetings, making deeper friendships, how to take things and group dynamics even now. I have learned a lot through sorry experience, but I would still count myself among those with "adjustment troubles." One wonders why the troubles continue; is it needing some different training and thinking, and something along the line of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy would work? Or does the early trauma and struggle leave actual physical pathways in the neurons of the brain, making it always a little harder to make the observations and judgements required to be competent in social situations?
I like the part in the news articles about what parents should do: not be embarrassed, panic, be angry or offer stupid ass suggestions like "Just let it roll off your back." (It still irks me, this response from my folks.)--parents can actually do some teaching to help their kids. And if you are a parent, and your kid is struggling--no friends, being picked on and bullied--don't just sit there, help your kid out. Seek professional help if you have to. You'll save your child a lot of work and angst later on. Trust me.
