Ten to Eleven YearsSocial Issues, cont
At the 5th grade end of the year party, P is horsing around with another student
The other boy gets suddenly furious and tackles P to the ground
Parents intervene, gently. The other boy flees the party and cannot be found
P is inconsolable, feels it is *his* fault
This child is eventually found, safe
