Reply To: Making Friends


I have a 14 year old son with ADHD, he has a twin brother who does not have it. He has 3 friends that he has been friends with since grade school. They get him and are very patient with him. When we ask him to text one of them to see if they want to join him for a movie or do something he says he does and tells us he doesn’t hear back from them. When we check his phone, he never sent the text to them in the first place. He will lie and say that he did. Is this common? He simply refuses to try and make any new friends, he says he has friends. Most of the kids at school shy away from him because they think he is too serious and can be very negative.
