Just been on facebook and lots of children seem to be meeting up and are really excited about it. Sad because 1) DS hasn't been invited 2) He wouldn't want to go 3) I never get to see anyone even if we go I have to follow him around making sure his not hitting anyone.
Just having a quick wallow anyone else feel the same.
Its so hard isnt it. Sorry he wasnt invited, awful people. Do something extra specially nice with him that you know he will love. DS isnt old enough to care yet but we dont get invited to other peoples houses and people dont come to ours very often. Its lonely.
Thanks for you replies, I too have been on the beach as the sun goes down. DS hates crowds on the beach. DS doesn't really talk to the children yet so he doesn't really know or care he's being left out.
Hi - I'm new on here (but have been lurking for a while) but know exactly how you feel. My ds2 is 4.5 (with an informal diagnosis of AS/HFA) and I've just had a whole year of pre-school witnessing all the other parents frantically arranging play-dates for their dcs whilst brushing past me and ds. Mind you, ds isn't bothered at all - it's me who feels lonely (and a little sad).
I'm not sure how old your ds is, but I too have a 'hitter' and have to shadow him wherever we go. The good news is that we've now had 3 weeks of him having not hit or bitten anyone (except trying to hit dogs - but that's another story!). I'm so proud - we've even managed a couple of successful trips to busy playgrounds (and me getting glared at/shouted at...)
Thanks for all your replies. I feel more positive today DS is 4.10. I'm glad your DS has stopped hitting wibbleweed it gives me hope. Thanks for the invite Becarooo I think your a bit far from me, really kind.
I had some wine abd watched DIY SOS, I know how to live! It's good to know people understand. We will go swimming today as he loves that.
