I know there are quite a few 'youngsters' on here, and wondered if you could give me any tips to help him.
He messed up his GCSE's and didn't get the grades he needed to do 6th form in his school, not a great school anyway, but he had solid friends there.
Anyway, ironically, the best school in the Borough/Area has offered him the 3x A level Btec course he wanted based on interview and his outlook.
He started today and is a fairly quiet boy, he doesn't know anybody, at all, he's had the obvious 'give it time' from me, but he is seeing all the negative and I just don't know what to say to him anymore. I want to say 'dont be stupid it'll be fine in a couple of weeks' but he's really sad and alone, so am just trying to reassure him.
So, I'm just wondering if any of you are going through or have gone through the same and can give me some advice for him x
Just to add, he isn't a quiet boy when he's with his friends etc, he just doesn't make friends easily.
