My ds has just started juniors at a new school and although he seem to be settling I have no idea on how I can try and start mixing in with the other moms.
I have been going a week and I have not spoken to a soul and I have only managed to pinpoint a couple of people as moms of children in my ds's class.
I honeslty feel like a freak at the moment and a real loner bearing in mind that I have always suffered from shyness anyway and have always had difficulty making small talk.
Has anybody any tips on how to play things at the moment, I am still trying to work out who his classmates are and who their parents are.
However I know that even when I do find out who they all are I will probably end up standing on my own wishing I had the courage to walk up and join in their conversation.
My ds is the only new one in his class and the other moms will have probably known each other since nursery.
I have to go to this school for a few years and I do not want to be like this for too long especially as I would like my ds to start having playdates after school.
Please help I am so useless at this even after just a week I am starting to feel depressed.
Any ideas on how to approach moms who are engaged in conversation, what sort of conversation could I start with them.
Sorry for sounding so pathetic.
Where do I start trying to get to know the new moms
