Each of my 6 children have all experienced the same challenges when it comes to making friends. 'How do i get them to like me?, why don't they let me play the game?, why did they stop playing with me?' However, for some, the challenge was greater than for the others. My oldest (with his adhd and autistic tendencies) has never felt the need to have friends; it's not a priority to him. On the other hand, my middle child has placed friends at the highest priority. Everything he does (manerisms, wardrobe, activities) is greatly influenced by his need to make and keep friends. And then for the rest of the gang, making friends has been a breeze. It comes down to each child individually as to what lengths they are willing to go to in order to make friends.
