Does anyone have any good blogs regarding tweens?
My DS is 11 and I am a bit worried about him making friends. He is a tell it like it is kid and often times you don’t need to hear words to know exactly how he is feeling – his non verbal cues are particularly loud. I really like that fact that he has such confidence in himself and I hope that will carry him through all of the tough decisions he is going to be facing in the next few years. However, I think that he comes across as really harsh and abrasive. The good thing is once people both adults and kids get to know him one on one I constantly get compliments on what a nice and pleasant kid he is.
Or maybe I should be asking if it is ‘normal’ for a boy to not have as an active social life or be called on by his buddies as a girl (our DD is 8 and has a social calendar that is crazy busy)?
I am particularly concerned right now since we are moving and he will be attending a new school.
