Hi ladies - I think I just need to vent (because my husband somehow doesn't understand), but I appreciate any advice you can give as well!
DS is an outgoing, friendly, kind guy. He has a ton of friends at pre-school and seemingly gets along with new kids he meets (e.g., friends of our friends, etc.)
Yesterday was his first day of camp - he's just there for a week while preschool is closed for vacation. He came back exhausted today, which I expected because they don't nap and he still does, and they had a full day of activities.He said he had fun and told me about the things they did, how he ate his lunch, how they swam, etc.
Before he fell asleep he started crying and asking not to go to camp tomorrow. After a few questions, he finally said that he played alone all day and didn't make any friends. I talked him through how to approach people (what's your name, let's play together, etc.), but inside my heart was totally breaking.
I am just so bummed out that he is feeling this way :( He's my little guy and I don't want him to feel an ounce of loneliness or rejection. I convinced him that tomorrow will likely be a great day (they are tie-dying t-shirts, of course it's going to be a great day :), but I'm so sad - I want him to make friends and be happy :)
Do you think I should talk to the teacher about this, or am I just being crazy, and should give him some room to figure it out on his own?
