My son is eleven. He has a hard time with his friends. His friends are all into sports and he is not. His friends always want to play sports when they come over or when they are playing in the park. He then starts playing with all their little brothers and sisters because he does not want to play. I tell him that he does not have to play organized sports but he should play to socialize with his friends. Now he does not even get picked to play becasue he is not that good. Also, he and his friends tend to play aggresively. My son is a lot bigger and it seems that when someone gets hurt he gets blamed ...sometimes it is his fault and sometimes it is not. Sometimes they all including my son get carried away but no matter what my son gets blamed. I feel terrible and don't know what to do. He has no real buddy in the class and he does not really want join things. He likes to be home and build things, go on the computer and watch tv. It makes me nuts because I tell him to get outside to play. He always asks for people to come over but they don't necessarily want to come because he likes to do the same things. I don't know what else to do. He likes 2 sports a little and plays them sometimes but not much. I need to get him involved in stuff but he always so no I don't want to do that. What do I do??
