"Mom, I have no friends"... how can I help my 14 year old make friends? I had him in a 6 week social skills group and he still doesn't understand the basics. It's hard when all he likes to do is sit in his room on his computer... any thoughts?

Does the school have a computer club? Sometimes a common interest is all it takes.

That is a really hard situation I think our family is heading down that same situation in about 3 years. I can already see the separation in her and others in her peer group. I hope you don't mind I don't have a good easy answer but an understanding ear. I will lift him up in my prayers tonight.
