DS, 8-1/2, is going through a phase ever since school ended where he does not want to play with friends. He has friends in the neighborhood who have literally been his best friends since birth, and he used to spend every single day after school with them. Now, he has no interest. He says nothing happened, no one is mad at anyone, he just doesn't feel like playing with them. I have asked if he wants to invite other friends from school over, and he doesn't. Kids have called to ask him to play, and he has said, "No, thanks."
He is keeping himself busy, playing with his army guys, hitting a tennis ball or having water balloon fights with his big brother, riding bikes with me, etc... He seems okay, not depressed. But it's puzzling to me. I wonder if this is normal? Have your kids gone through a stage like this?
