K has had a hard time ever making friends. Last year she actually made a friend, a boy *I* who they thought was on the spectrum. He was so sweet though and we could care less if he had any issues. At her new School she has a few G'sFG in her class. I think they place more in her class due to her Teacher being really good with them. So her *friends* now so far are a little girl A who is adopted and at first she seemed nice... as time has gone on... she has a bit of an evil side. She is pushing K to always do things. "Lets go get these buttons... it's OK I do it all the time, let's go get an ice cream before our parents show up" Luckily we are always around before and after school, her parents are always late to pick up and drop off. One day when we could not wait with her for one of her Dad's she just started hitting husband! She smashed a little flower that N gave her today. I told her it was not very nice, she flipped me the full on attitude! "So, you shouldn't have picked it" (I don't think we will be having playdates...) Then the other one is T a boy who is also adopted. I have seen him getting in trouble a few times, very aggressive. But we actually met his parents out for ice-cream one night... he has the same diagnosis as K. They were so excited to meet another family with a difficult child. T and N and K played in front of the ice-cream store very nice. They said T has no friends, because of his social issues. He is a lot more aggressive and angry at School than K. K will do whatever it takes to not get in trouble, T and A seemed to care less. A's parents seemed clueless as to her attitude and bad behaviour. husband and I have hung out and talked to them a few times. But T's parents seemed a bit more into helping their child. husband just hates the feeling like K's only friends will ever be G'sFG. Even N is gravitating towards the difficult child in her class! I don't think there is anything we can do, but should we have playdates? I don't think with A, but maybe with T and his parents? We are going to talk with K about this with her new therapist. K is also starting a social group in school this week. What have you guys done when your little ones gravitate to the kids that tend to get in trouble. I am just worried because K is such a follower, and wants to make everyone happy and like her. We talk about all of this stuff, but once she gets anxious she *forgets* and gets confused.
