My little guy is 7 and a half years old and he's a bit nerdy, like his parents. He's having some trouble relating to the kids he meets at school, so I was trying to think of ways that he can meet other kids with similar interests. He likes building things and is into complex stuff, he loves science and studying animals and space and stuff like that.
He's having problems socializing with other kids and feeling like he belongs and has common interests. Emotionally speaking, he's a bit behind in his ability to relate to other people, and is very sensitive.
So, I thought getting him exposed to kids who are into stuff that he likes might help. I understand the Lego stores have clubs where kids build Lego stuff together on Saturday mornings, and we don't have a Lego store but something like that would be amazing to try out.
Do you other mamas have any ideas on activities we could try?
I have shared custody so he's only with me every other weekend, so it would need to be something where we could go when we could, not an every-week commitment.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
