But our child, who already has a social handicap, is likely not in optimal situations for them to learn make friends.
For any child to make friends, they would first need someone who is:
– willing to be a Friend,
– willing to see through the child’s “queer” behaviours and understand the child,
– willing to spend time to get to know the child better, and
– willing to discover the child’s desires and unfold what will help the child flourish.
With such tough pre-requisites, how can we ask a child to learn to make friends?
But we can recruit and teach Son-Rise® volunteers who are willing to be our children’s friends first, then encourage the child to take the next step.
We have been blessed that Son-Rise showed us this direction and God continues to bless us with amazing volunteers!
