My 14 yr old son has ADHD and has gotten so much calmer and has learned to control his outbursts and has just really matured in the last 2 yrs. I thought he would start to make friends but he sits at home never asked to hang out with other teens. We moved 3 months ago and he has two boys his age right in front of us they hung out for about 2 months and now they don't even say hello to my son on the bus or anything. They and there mother won't even wave to me when I pull out of my driveway. My son swears nothing happened between him and the boys and he and I are very hurt. My son says he has no one to sit with at lunch in school. He told me that he tries to talk to kids and they will talk to him once or twice but then they start ignoring him or telling him he is annoying. I just don't know exactly how to teach him social skills. My Sons father remarried and has another 2 year old son and ever since he met this woman he stopped taking Mat I tell him how depressed Mat is but he still only takes him on Major holidays. My son quit hockey because his father ahockey player himself wouldn't come to his games.By the way his new step mother owns a zoo Thats right a zoo for the enjoyment of children while they break my sons heart. How can I help my son feel good about himself and how to make friends?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
