My 12 year old son has come home really upset today. He is the kind of kid that makes friends really easily and seems to get on with everybody, but never gets included in any out of school activities. This has been getting him down recently and today was the last straw. One of his so called "best" mates is having a birthday party and has invited all the "gang" but not him. To make matters worse they have been taunting him all day about it and say they are going to drive past our house in the limo and wave to rub it in. In addition to this another friend had his party during the holidays and also didnt invite him. He is so down today and I dont know what to say to make it better. I have just told him that its not because there is anything wrong with him and that they are the ones that have lost out. But it all seems such a poor subsitute. I worry about him so much because he seems to struggle so hard to fit in. Any advice, my heart is breaking for him right now.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
