Kelly1971 asks:

My 5th grade son is overly emotional when it comes to school work.  How can I help him?

He has broken down into tears on several occasions during school and has gotten the attention of the teacher and principal.  He has friends, plays sports and is very considerate of other people's feelings.  However, when it comes time to do something he doesn't understand or perceives to be difficult he breaks down.  He also breaks down when he has forgotten something he needs to turn in at school.  When I try to understand what is going on he doesn't speak freely.  Are there ways to help him?
