Can't find anyone to play with at recess...

DS's complaint yesterday was that he "can't find anyone to play with at recess." I took a deep breath and got into what I was afraid as going to be a painful conversation.

Turns out, he meant he literally can't find the kids he's wanting to play with once he's outside. I suggested that when it's time to go out for recess, he should walk outside with some kids he'd like to play with. That way, he doesn't have to find them because he's already with him. He came home today and told me that my plan worked.

Gotta love it when kids give you an easy problem to solve.

Okay for about 4 seconds I had a broken heart. Glad it was an easy fix.

Re: Can't find anyone to play with at recess...

Just a thought... has he had a vision exam?

Last year we figured out my son needed glasses. His eyes were really bad, I was surprised. I asked him how he found me in a room full of people and he said, "I called your name." Broke my heart. I had no idea.

Anyway, that's the first thing I thought of when you said he literally couldn't find his friends.
