We can learn so much from not just what the Rebbe said
But HOW the Rebbe respectfully attentively and gently responded to the mothers concern

Thank you pollock family for sharing.

And the Rebbe said it so gently and respectfully to the mother.

I'm would not chas vesholom claim to know the Rebbe's reason for asking but I would think it is to show how if he has regular friends and goes to a regular school he is not a problematic child is not such an angry child.

So accurate
I had a similar situation where my son took great pleasure in annoying my daughter to no end - and I felt so helpless bec, I couldn't get him to stop. Only when I told the two of them that I was staying completely out of it did it come to an end. When no one was getting attention for it - they each learned to figure out how to keep out of each others hair. Best advice!

Seems like the Rebbe is asking from the parents if the child is special needs. the parents confirm that that's not the case... Amazing!
Thanks for sharing this with us. Please share more.

mothers anxiety
seems to me too that the Rebbe was basically telling the mother to not make a big issue of normal child hood behavior and that sometimes with our over-worry we can create problems too.
let a child be a child and all will work out well:)
love it!!

is he is he 18?
i thought it was very telling when the Rebbe assumed she was talking about a 18 year old.

Baruch Hashem our son is established with a family and a career and the Brochos from the Rebbe are still affecting us all in the most positive ways. The Rebbe gave us excellent advice and we hope that sharing this most personal experience will help others. Reuven and Tzipora Pollock

We weren t blaming the school; we were trying to be realistic about our son both his behavior and his needs. And even though at first I was angry at the school for not noticing our son s issues sooner, I was grateful to his third grade teacher for noticing what was going on. Up until third grade, our son had been able to use charm to get by in school.
