Friends or not?

Has anyone experienced their son having trouble with
someone they consider a friend? A friend complained
to teacher about my son saying things that were in response to questions the boy asked but then he didn’t like the answers. And if my son ever points something out that he got wrong he can’t except it. Now I am not trying to say my guy is always right or perfect and the other guy is extremely bright but I truly think he misses
common sense things in interactions. I should also say
that my guy can be trying at times and can be a nervous wreck and awkward. And any advise how to
help them work it out, they are both 13? Or is this just a
boy thing and we should let the teachers deal with them.

The second approach is best. If the issue comes up at school
it ought to be settled there.

You can also ask your son if he would like your help and in what way.
