The mother’s constant visit to Mark and the students’ relationship with Karim bring more problems to the situation. The mother’s concern for her son is understandable she doesn’t offer any useful advice to Mark on how to solve the problem. All she does is whine and complain without ever listening to what Mark has to say. Also, the manner how the students treat Karim complicates the problem. Due to Karim’s poor social skills, he is often left out from class activities.There are three possible solutions to these problems. First, Karim should be consulted by a child psychologist. The root cause of his poor social skills and family issues can be uncovered by talking to a psychologist. Second, Mark should be more open to Mrs. Peterson about Karim’s poor social skills in school.
