When we moved to a new town last summer, I wasn't sure how my 12-year-old son would make new friends. I saw lots of kids his age biking around our new neighbourhood or playing ball at the park. But when you're 12, it's not easy to just walk over to a strange kid and introduce yourself.
Plus my son was more interested in staying inside to play Fortnite and other videogames, which wasn't helping. With the new school year approaching and my son's anxiety about going to a new school rising, I decided to take things into my own hands.
