That maybe I'm doing the wrong thing by homeschooling my oldest. He doesn't join in group activites, and he doesn't seem interested in making friends. He did fine when he went to preschool a couple years ago but now when we go out and do stuff he doesn't want to join in.
Went to an Easter party the other day and he did talk to a few kids and was in a large group of boys for awhile but he stayed on the outskirts of the group. Went to a birthday party today and he didn't want to do the roller skating or the mini golf or the laser tag. He didn't really join in and was on the outskirts again.
I'm putting him in more stuff coming up but there is only so much I can do in a week. Am I overreacting? Have any of you dealt with this? I don't know... maybe it would benefit him more to be in school.
Just a quick update. I feel even better than when I posted a response earlier today. I had a long talk with my son and while he couldn't tell me why, he did tell me that he is shy and is scared of trying new things. I asked him if he could say hi to one kid at each of his new classes this week and at cub scouts tomorrow. He looked scared and I told him that you might never know if you could make an awesome friend if you just say hello to someone. So he told me yes, he would do it. I thought that was a fantastic start and I'm really happy we talked. So thanks again ladies. You all gave me lots to think about and to consider. I appreciate it! :)
