I'm new to this site and looking for some advice or perspective from others.
Our 6 year old boy does not seem to have a 'best friend' in the way our 7 year old daughter has. He seems to float amongst friends at lunchtime. He has not been invited to a birthday party or play date this year.
He seems happy enough. Enjoys his own company. Mentions other boys names (describing games or stories etc). Sometimes he reads alone / plays alone.
There are two boys in his class who he seems to play with regularly. They play a chasy game but our son is always 'it'. We have spoken to the teacher, but she feels everything is fine (based on her observation).
I'm trying to organise play dates but this is hard when I don't know any of the mums (we can't do drop offs and pick ups) and our son hasn't developed any strong friendships.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
