8 yr old boy sad about not having friends
My son is an only child and is sensitive. He is very caring and funny but he has trouble making friends. And since he is sensitive, kids tend to tease him and his feelings get hurt pretty easily which probably makes the situation worse. He did have a best friend but they are growing apart. His friend is noticing girls and my son is still just interested in playing.....this is also causing him heartache as he feels his friend doesn't like him anymore.
He has told me that he feels useless and that no one likes him and that his life is hard and he doesn't want to be alive. I do not know what to tell him or how to help him.
What have others done to help their kids?
Advice is greatly appreciated---it just break my heart that he doesn't have a good friend and is so sad about this.
