My son started 1st grade this week at a new school. Last year, he had trouble making friends in kindergarten, and even by the end of the year, he didn't really have any close friends. His teacher was great at encouraging the other kids to play with him, and encouraging him to ask other kids if they wanted to play, but he was still an outsider. I know I can't expect an instant best friend after only a couple days of school but here is why I'm worried... This morning while we were waiting for the bus, he saw a kid across the street that he wanted to go over to say hi. The bus was already driving down the street, so i told him to wait until he got on the bus to say hi. He told me that he sat with the bus yesterday with him. So today, I see him get on the bus and sit down next to the boy, and then the boy got up and changed seats. I'm so heartbroken for my son. He is such a sweet kid, but that doesn't help him make friends.Answer Question
