I can't tell you what needs to be done. But what i want to know is he involved in activities on the outside in society? I will be homeschoolong for the first time. I will be having my child associating with different people. I have planned for her to have Spanish class with a teacher at home with another student. She will have that every Monday for one hour. She's only seven. I'm still planning things out. But get him involved in activities as boy scouts, soccer, basketball or etc. You can't just keep them at home. Our library has activities during thre summer for children to do such as science projects, reading, and etc. My daughter has made friends like that. Depending on what your situation is with your son, I can't give anymore suggestions.Elaborate more on what's going on.

Cub scouts is an awsome program...join it, be a den mother, have a blast. It is a program that encourages social skills, leadership skills, personal mental and physical skills. It builds great character...and with that come a confindence in yourself...and that makes for great people skills. Also, make girlfriends, or join homeschool groups that have boys your sons age. He may be shy by nature...and that is okay, dont push him...but set up opportunities. Most people have a small handful, if not just a couple, of true friendships...

Get him involved. Ask him what he is interested in. It might be a team sport, an instrument, singing or dancing, boy scouts. Anything! And join him up. If he doesnt like it, try somthing else. Just somthing to get him involved with kids. Then he can make friends and develop social skills from there.

Im only 13, and i hav friends from my regular school and other schools, but i do have hobbies, and its true. Your son will gain friends and a new interest!

Also if you have friends wtih sons or daughters around the same age, Introduce them. They might just find a new friend.

You should join a Homeschool group in your area. Or head out to the park- co-ops offer classes with other kids. Or get him involved with activities and he'll meet plenty of kids. You can do a search on Yahoo for homeschool groups.

Hope that helps!
