This is a learning situation for students of the University of Practical Psychology. Imagine that a woman came to you as a consultant.
Alla, 40 years old. The husband died 6 years ago. One brings up her son Artem, who is now 19 years old. He works at two jobs, very tired. He pays his son for college and a rented apartment. The son is used to being provided by his mother, and he is not going to get a job to help financially. He says that he still won’t work in his specialty, he doesn’t like the specialty (his mother forced me to enter). He studies poorly, spends most of his time playing computer games.

A survey of educators and teachers regarding the individual characteristics of children’s behavioral characteristics makes it possible to consider that usually boys are more excitable, irritable, restless, impatient, restrained, intolerant, unsure of themselves and even more aggressive than girls.
