As a mother who went thru the friendship delima,I became the mom who became the driver for all the weekend events(until high school)..Since most parents would love not to be on pickup standby,it allowed me to get to know the kids my son was around.It allowed him the ability to build friendships and invite kids over to the house for video games and pizza which allowed him to build his first set of friends ( less than 5 around age 11). Some the kids came and went because they were unable to deal with an ADHD kid but the ones who stayed ended up being really good friends to my son so much so that he told them he was ADHD….so I say start small and build up to the party next year….
