I have a 12 year old boy who is struggling with keeping friends. I will give a little back ground on this and (I will make it brief). My son met this boy a couple of years ago who was picked on all the time. My son then decided to make friends with this boy and introduced him to his friends and stuck up for him when others (including his friends) would pick on him. Over the years they became great friends doing everything together and his mother even came over and spoke to me about how great my son was for helping her son out. Sounds great right, except now my son is being excluded from the group. I spoke to the mother of the boy who my son had helped those couple of years ago, (as they had a few of the kids on their hockey team together at their house, which by the way live right behind us) and her response was I can't make my son be friends with your son. Then she also told me one of the other boys dislikes my son so she could'nt have him over either way. So now my son has become very angry boy and when he's not angry he's sad. I just want to make him feel better and see the happy boy he used to be.
