Facing the growing demand for studies and interventions with respect to children that show difficulties during their first contact with primary school, the authors deal with this kind of problem by following the evolutionary process of such a child, which hardly appears to be in a position to handle stress as well as the emotive ambivalence connected to the process of knowledge and therefore abreacts his\her excitement by acting out and is barely willing to accept external rules or to focus on long-lasting engagements. By considering clinical experiences, the article furthermore discusses possible ways of assisting the teacher to tackle the emotional dynamics in his/her group class, that are connected to share a mental common space in which both teacher and student elaborate on their conflicts. The article ends by analyzing new forms of uneasiness that arise when working with children nowadays and by outlining some reasons for these phenomena.

Keywords: Construction of the Self, learning difficulties, bodily excitement, group dynamics, narcissistic contract, negative capability.
