"The ultimate goal of raising children is to help them out of our lives and into successful lives of their own. "

Encouraging Friendships


We have recently moved from US to Singapore for 3 years with my husband’s job. My 11 and 5 year old have made lots of friends and are settling in. My 9 year old son is happy to go to school and happy when he gets off the bus but at nights cries because he has not made a friend. He says he is so lonely. He is a great kid but a little different as he doesn’t like sports and more mainstream stuff. He is trying so hard and it is heartbreaking to watch. He is at the American school but it is huge and I am sure overwhelming. Any ideas on making friends or advice to give him?
