Last week I went to Sebastian’s school for Back to School Night. I sat in his classroom listening as the other mothers discussed how difficult it was for their children to make friends. Yes, I know all about that. I do what I can to help Sebastian. I immediately offered to exchange contact information with the other moms.
I knew Sebastian would love to invite his classmates to hang out. He is no doubt socially challenged, but he is motivated. I’m so grateful he’s motivated, but I struggle to push aside my fears. Social skills are hard to teach, especially in middle school, and let’s agree not to dwell on high school right now. You can go to Mamalode and read about The Invitation Sebastian received that continues to give me hope.
