10yr old son and making friends
Sun, 08-22-2004 - 11:27pm
My son will be 10 in October and has trouble making & keeping friends. He will play with one child every day for a week and then we don't hear about that child anymore. He can be shy around new people, but he's been at the same school since kindergarten. Alot of the kids even went to the same pre-school. Both of us work every day and we don't arrive at home until dinner time, which makes it really hard to arrange for friends to visit or him to visit others. He has stayed in almost all summer. He says that the playground is 'boring'. Any suggestions?

Children can change friends as often as some of us change our underwear.

I think a big part of friendships has to do with the child's personality.
