Article: My Son Has No Friends. How Can I Help Him?
I'm only 5 months into being a mom but I already have some fears about this. Not because my kid won't be awesome (because he already is), but because we all know how cruel kids can be. We all grew up with those people who seemed to come out of the womb with invitations to every party, and we also grew up with those who didn't.
I was surprised at the part of this article that said that kids can learn some valuable lessons about being socially awkward. Do you agree?
I do agree with the article, especially when she says that kids who are intolerable or not reading people's body language properly, it can be a learning opportunity for them.
I think every kid who has any sort of social awkwardness skirts around this behavior, but it seems temporary, especially in the early teen years. So long as a child isn't being bullied or anything, though, I think riding it out may be the best course.
