Re: Helping my 4 yo "move on" from friends?
I do believe that some friendships are simply situational and it is obvious that this would be one of these cases based on the lack of response from these people.
I would just suggest an alternate (new and available) friend the next time that he brings it up. I have had to do this with my kids when it comes to moving from preschool (private and feeds into a school we aren't zoned for) to "big school." I realize that there is just no way that we can keep up with every little friend that my LOs make, so we try to pick and choose ones that will be around for the long haul.
