Play Date Help!!!!
My son is almost six and has ADD. He is doing very well in kindergarten, I think because his class is so structured. He’s making friends and finally being invited to birthday parties and play dates. The problem is that he is so impulsive when things aren’t structured. Play dates at our house are ok because I can structure the play when I see him getting a little out of control. But, he is tired of always playing at our house and wants to start playing at other children’s homes. Any ideas how I can help to make this successful for him? My anxiety goes through the roof the few times I have allowed him to go play at someone else’s house just because I know there is going to be a problem. He doesn’t want me to stay and the other mom always says it’s ok if I leave. Any ideas how to make this work?
