It's been quite some time since I've posted, but these trusty IV message boards have never let me down!
Welcome back to the boards! The support here is great, isn't it? :)
Have you talked to Sean about it? Does it bother him? With school starting back up, you have a great resource at hand in his teacher. She might be able to facilitate friendship blooming between him and the other kids in the class or give you some good ideas.
Honestly, he doesn't seem to be affected by it or even notice it. I guess I'm getting into that danger zone of comparing my child to others. I see the children of friends and aquantances who are similar in age and they all seem to have a "best friend" and other friends from school or sports or ballet, etc. Sean plays basketball in the Winter, but even there, while the other boys and girls would play around and knew each other, Sean was never really a part of it. Perhaps asking his teacher this year would be a good idea.
I think we all fall into the trap of comparing. The funny part is, we want them to be like nobody else! LOL
My boys are homeschooled and while they do have friends,
Thanks for the link to the signature boards. I knew they were out there, just wasn't able to find them as easily as I had thought.
Interestingly, the friends I spoke of also have girls, not boys. So it appears that, for a boy, Sean is normal.
