7 year old seems bored....

My 7 year old seems bored since we're new to the area he doesn't have many friends to play with outside of school. He's an outside kinda kid, video games and tv interest him very little (thank goodness) but throwing the ball with mom is getting old and it's getting too cool for the pool. Any suggestions? Single mom needs some help here...

  • Take him to the park on the weekend. Kids are amazing at making new friends. Maybe you and another mother could set up park play dates for a while until you get to know each other well enough to do home visits. Or check and see if you have a rec district that would offer something he could get into with kids his age. And eventually he will make friends at school or through church or whatever. Those might help get the ball rolling though.
