Default Re: social skills with autism

As @jamie_n5 says, not all kids are mean. But I think most of them are not very patient, either. I found that I could only have a few friends ... perhaps 3 maximum ... and even those, I can really only deal with one at a time. Occasionally, 2 of them at a time. And my few friends have been to my house (easiest to handle social dynamics on my own territory, rather than dealing with new surroundings at the same time), and they know my mum and know a bit of how to deal with my struggles.

I am saying that you perhaps should not try to be extremely social all at once; slow down, step back and be social one person at a time.
