If he really is an introvert, he won't ever want or need more than a few very carefully chosen friends. Does he want to interact with other kids? Or does he seem perfectly happy playing by himself? Do a little reading on introverts, it may help you determine if he is one, or if he's just shy. If it turns out he's just shy, Louise's advice on teaching through example is spot on. It may also help if you ask your son in private why he doesn't seem to 'gel' with his classmates.

You lead by example and show him how to interact with people. If he sees you smile and make conversation then he will immitate what he sees. He may be really shy so look for a club in his area that he is interested in and take him along.
