I added a post a while back about my 11 year old with friend issues. I want to thank everyone for their advice. We toured the public middle school last week and HE made the decision to go there. He loved the school and everything the principal had to say. The only 2 concerns he has are: the large grade size (going from 34 to 340) (400 whole school to about 1,200 public school) AND changing for gym everyday (he's a big guy). He has been sitting home a lot this summer as only 1 boy calls him but hasn't in about 3 weeks. It is starting to make him not care so this week I am going to call for a few kids to come over. (no boys from the old school) and hope that helps him. When his brother hangs with him (he's 17) my younger is a totally different kid...happy! Fingers crossed that this public school move gets him involved and finds his group of friends who have the same interests so we can all be happy more often. (Too many hormones in my house...lol).
