My daughter has a friend in the neighborhood. I SO want her to have friends, but she just doesn't interpret social cues. I was watching but I was also enjoying just TALKING to an adult. The kids went outside and I just knew this was a bad idea. The kids came running back inside about 15 minutes later saying my daughter had run away. She came back crying hysterically. We had to leave and I just didn't want to ruin the other girl's birthday. ugh. I want her to be social and learn but at this point I wonder if it's worth it when we just end up in tears for two hours and now she has to face this at school tomorrow?
