My son has no interests. He plays baseball but thats it. He has no friends. Everytime I ask to invite someone along or over he says no. When I ask why he says I don't know. He is very smart but does not apply himself. He of course likes video games but I have Limited play to an hour a day. He would play all day and night! How do I get him involved in other things? What are some activities that other kids do? I hope someone can help me. I am clueless as to what to do.

My children have thrived and made a lot of friends here:
They just had to find their passion and find others with the same passion.
Also, do you have a Boys and Girls Club in your area? That is an excellent place to get out and make friends in a safe environment.

Continued: I would see about getting him on a little league baseball team come spring/summer since it is a interest of his. You could also take him winter time to the indoor batting cages and let him practice for fun. You can't force him to pick friends, but maybe if he spends enough time outside school he may develop friends on his own. I think he might also like photography or art? He might enjoy writing or more quiet things. Something to help his self esteem may be personal or family as a whole volunteering as another idea to get him more sociallized and out of his shell perhaps? PM me if you have more Q.
