need some insight or advice from btdt moms of 6 yr olds. Ds used to be so social. This year, 1 st grade, he seems to be struggling. He doesn't engage at the park even with kids he...
knows. He used to be so happy and social. He stands to the side and waits to be invited to play. Comes home from school on a some days and says kids are mean but won't explain. I don't think he's being bullied and I don't think kids are being mean. I think ds is misinterpreting things, I.e, if a child says can I cut in front of you in line, he thinks they're being mean.
I'd say one of two things: first, this is the age when kids start being mean, but funny-mean... so, my 6 yo will come home and say he didn't eat lunch b.c. some kids played...(more)12-19-2011 8:39pm
keep-away-with his sandwich. And my heart will sink and I'll think he's being bullied, but he's not unhappy about it and the kids are two boys who are his best friends. second, it might just be that he doesn't like the same things that the pack likes. Again, from my son's perspective, every one of his friends is in love with Star Wars. When i was planning his birthday party, he wanted me to exclude one kid in his class. Why? He doesn't like Star Wars. Just some thoughts. Hope it helps.
