I feel so sad for difficult child. He has so much trouble with friends. He use to attend a Friday night skating event, now he won't go. the last time he went he called crying, asked to be picked up. This was quite a while ago and wouldn't tell us why at the time. Tonight he told me that he isn't "cool" everyone tells him that. The last time he went skating, everyone asked him why he was there, that nobody wanted him there and called him names. He has few friends. But what really gets me is that these kids will talk to him, they will make plans with him, and never call. Today he sat at home, never stepped outside because someone was suppose to come over. Kid never showed, never called. He called another boy, who was out with others at the time but said he would call when he got home. No call. I do not understand. difficult child gets his hopes up, has all these plans and the kids never even call. If they don't want to come over, or do things with difficult child why don't they just say no. Why would they say yes, then never even bother to call. difficult child went to a "lock-in" tonight all alone. He likes this place, and says he is familiar with many of the kids, but don't really know them. We were real hesitant to let him go. But husband went there at midnight to meet with him (check that things are ok). difficult child called me a short time ago to check in and let me know all is ok and he is having a good time. He will be online to talk to me, and said he will call me every two hours. (I am at work). We also instructed him to call at anytime and we would pick him up. I just feel so bad that he waits and waits and has his hopes up and the others never even call.
