Today I received a phone call from the family down the street. To sum it up the mother feels our families aren't good fits for each other. We're too liberal in our beliefs for them, and the older children don't like my son.
I felt like I was back in middle school and I cried for a while. I thought we were actually really good friends, so this was a big shock for me.
I don't know how to explain this to my son. He's 5 and asks nearly every other day to play at their house. He's also very sensitive and feels rejection rather harshly. I will tell him the truth, I just don't know the softest way to go about it. Any advice will be much appreciated.
