My son turned 10 on February and he invited 7 friends for his birthday party. On that Sunday we arrived at the playground where his birthday party would be celebrated and nobody was there. I felt so furious, sad, impotent, I just wanted to cry. My son told me he didn’t want to stay there, he wanted to go home. His eyes were all tears,he was sad and ashamed. I’ll never forget his face. I encouraged him saying that they were late and they would come. I baked a big cake and for the 1st time it was perfect. I took a lot of food and drinks. And there we were, me and him waiting. All the other kids had friends and he had none.
After half an hour came one friend. He was very happy and they played all afternoon.
