My son has a classmate who is emotionally disturbed. He gets some special classes, but most of the time he is in the regular class. My son is afraid of him. My son is only age 7, but I want him to not be afraid. I told him that his classmate just has some problems, like we all do. But my son insists that his classmate is "too weird". I was thinking to read some related children's books to him or something to help build his tolerance. Just wondered what others have to say.
