DSS is 7 and while he says he has 2 best friends... really he just plays with anyone and those 2 boys just live near him.
DSD is 9 and is similar- her mum claims she has social anxiety and trouble making friendships, but we believe her mum is placing her own issues on DSD's shoulders.

Could you maybe send a note in his bag to give to someone that he wants a playdate with? Put your number on it and get them to pass it on to another Mum. I had someone do this to DS1 at preschool last year as we kept missing each other at pickup and their son really wanted to have a playdate. DS1 was really happy about it too.
I've been fortunate that I can do pick up and drop off at school so I see his friends and can talk to other parents. So far he has 1 friend who he has playdates after school twice a week and he has his best friend who came over in the holidays. He talks about a lot more boys from school and I always see him saying hello or goodbye to them but they haven't done anything outside of school.
Also chasing seems to be a popular game for this age. Does someone else have a turn being "it" after he catches them?

Hi Lucy, before my DS1 started school, we had a parent interview and the teacher said 'don't worry if DS1 doesn't form 'best friend' relationship-boys will all play together and will also want to play with the girls- the girls can sometimes form small girl groups and 'best friend' very early on'- that was her experience as a teacher of 25 years. I am so glad she told me that, as that is exactly what has happened. He's always been very happy, we try to have some play dates, and soccer has been a brilliant sport for my sons, and also for the whole family to enjoy!
