Son socially awkward/immature
Crazycrazylady · 10/12/2022 14:33
My son is 12 and socially a little immature . He does have some friends in school but is incredibly reluctant to approach boys in his class if he came across them . I think he can come across as aloof sometimes
He plays sport to a high level and is bright but socially he is just a little awkward.
Any idea as how to support him before he makes the change to secondary school.

I really don't know on that one, but hopefully someone will be along soon who can offer some suggestions

I'm stumped on that one, but maybe someone else will chime in with some ideas.

Encourage him to be himself and find his people. Not everyone is a socialite the worst thing u can do is make him feel like he's failing for not being popular. Love him fir who he is and encourage him to be do the same.

Honestly I think things will come in time. Everyone changes after they settle into secondary school and go through puberty. I’m early 20s and a lot of my male school friends were awkward in year 7 but social butterflies in year 9.

I do think he needs to sometimes make the effort rather than wait for someone to approach him. He's a fabulous child I just want him to show off his amazing sense of humour to others a bit more so they'll love him as much as we do.
