NBC Parenthood About Child With Asperger's Syndrome Making Friends

Encourage Your Child to Befriend Kids With Cool Parents?

When your kid makes a friend, a relationship between the children's parents also evolves. Last night on Parenthood, Adam and Kristina encourage Max to make friends. The eight year old skips out early on the first get together, and his mom and dad are none to happy to cut the loony parents loose as well. But when a couple they really like do the same thing to them, it frustrates Adam. He says:

So now we're relegated to the short bus? We have to hangout with people like the Lessings instead of cool people like the Genatasios?

To which Kristina says, "Maybe it's not about us right now, maybe it's about Max." And Adam replies, "Can't it be about us just a little bit?" Do you meddle in your children's friendships?

I had a friend tell me she "ditched" the people she was with because the "cool parents" invited her to join them. Nice, huh?
