No I don't think so with my kids but they are homeschooling so they don't have quite as much peer pressure. Jeremy is a little shy and I would like him to work on that.

Definatley. Alexis is globally delayed, including socially. She is just starting to become interested in people around her. She still does not interact well in groups, and does not do any cooperative play.

I have that problem with Brandon. He is sociable but sometimes doesn't interact appropriately. For example, when we went to the zoo this weekend he punched a little boy. He was trying to play pretend I think and he didn't hurt him or anything but it really upset me! Fortunately the mom was really cool about it and didn't make a big deal about it. The little boy didn't even realize it. I think he just thought Brandon was tapping him.

That's rough. I would get upset about it too. The problem we have with Alexis now is that she will go up to the kids and instead of just saying hello, she says hello Alexis, and the other kids ignore her and run away. I usually try to explain that she's just trying to say hello, but the kids don't seem to care.

Brandon doesn't do that but he does things that are really similar. He doesn't ever get a long with kids his own age. He seems to do fine with older kids because they are more understanding with him.

Same with Alexis. She prefers older children and adults.

Yes, definitely. Lizzie is fortunate to be friends with a set of twins girls her age that used to live in my neighborhood. I pick them up from school everyday and make sure they do their homework and feed them. Sometimes my husband has a fit, they may be here for 4 hours some days. But it's good for Lizzie to have them here.

As for new friends, the older she gets, the harder it is to make new friends her age. They see how immature she is. She usually ends up talking with girls that are close to 8 or 9.

I can see how some kids meeting her for the first time react to her
