Maybe something is not up to Farooq’s liking or something is troubling him.
Maybe he is not well-rested or not getting adequate nutrition. First, start by setting a small routine for him with nutritious food and sleep patterns. Also, try and talk to Farooq about what is troubling him. Open up with him and allow him to share his feelings with you.
Interactions with his teachers and authorities might also help you. Reward and praise him when he gets involved and shows interest. Finally, if nothing else works, consult a doctor to rule out any disorders.
