What’s The Scenario?: Socializing Your Only Child


Your son is 6 years old and an only child. You received a call from his teacher today letting you know he was involved in another fight. There are toys in the classroom that all the kids must share. Apparently, he punched one of his classmates over what he called “his toy”. Not getting along with other kids has been a reoccurring issue since he has been in school. You are beginning to realize that maybe the fact that outside of school, he’s never around kids his age. All of his cousins are much older. Not to mention the fact that at home he plays alone, your neighborhood doesn’t have many children his age. You’ve tried putting him in sports but that didn’t seem to interest him.


What advice would you give??
