Hi friends, My son is 7 year old, he is the only child to me. I engage him in differenct kinds of activities like Kumon, sunday Hindu class, Martial arts, and seasonally swimming, basketball etc. but somehow I feel pity he doesn't have good freinds for free play. I try to intiate play date, some people dont show much interest. :bonk how should I handle. My son always wants somebody to come to our house also to have get together and paly some time, doesn't matter desi or Amrus. What are all the ways I can invite the people. He has one good friend of school, but that kid is foster kid as has restrictions by state for visiting anybody's house without parents etc, so he cannot come. Other kid although he is good friend of my son, one day said he cannot come until April as they are getting new baby at home:hide: new baby at home and this kid is busy? I thought his parents are not so intersted. Other kid I invited once, but that family didn't take intiative to maintain relationship for further play days from their side, how can I ask again and again. I dont understand the mentality of people, how can I find good friends to me and also for my son. I feel like I am after the people to make friendship. :drowning Please give me tips to make new connections and invite people. Sujatha.
