And it's happened several times since then. He begs and begs to go ask someone to play. I try and give him excuses as to why he can't because I know he will be disappointed. He wants to play SO bad, it's almost all he talks about. So finally I tell him ok. There were 5 kids playing outside, he went up to them, asked if he could play and they completely ignored him. He asked again and one just turned around and said "GOODBYE ethan".
This happens at school, too. He eats lunch alone and plays with rocks at recess.
I feel so bad for him. I know he is a strange kid. I was, too. I don't know how to help him make and keep friends.
He is only 6.
