hi I posted this thread a few hours ago but can't find it so I don't know if it posted properly. Anyway my primary one son aged 5 is quiet but he's came out his shell since starting school. He did take a wee while to settle. He had separation anxiety. He is a lovely natured wee boy, gets on with all his class mates. His special wee friend is moving to another school. I'm gutted for my son, I think they are always together. Part of me thinks it is a good thing as the other wee boy tells my son who he can and cannot play with when my son wants to play with others. I have told him to play with with who he wants. He says it makes him sad sometimes that he can't play with others. I'm just worried that he will be alone at playtime, there are only 6 boys in his class of 20. A lot of wee friendships have started. I'm a bit of a worrier.

I am quite sure that he won't be alone at play time. I bet he won't even notice by the end of the week, especially if the other lad stops him playing with orhers.Hell be too busy having fun with others.

This happened to my daughter when she was in reception and it's the best thing that ever happened to her!! They were joined at the hip and on the last day of term his mum announced that they were moving to the other side of the world and they should say goodbye to each other!!!!!

There were a lot of tears over the holiday and I worried about her but first day back and there were no problems at all. Their friendship was rather claustrophobic and excluded all others and she has come on so much since he left.

Just keep an eye on him and make sure he knows what is happening. Kids are more resilient than us at times.

Thanks, I think as parents we do a lot of worrying. I don't like the fact that this little boy dictates who my son plays with. There is another wee girl in there wee group and her and the boy who's moving fight over my son as they want to be his only friend. I don't like my son only having one friend, I'd rather he played with others. Hopefully things will work out in primary 2. I have tried to explain but not went into it to much. I told him there will be lots of new friends next term. He's just so shy and timid at times. I'm quite shy myself but I always had my twin sister throughout school.
