Asher, Part 5: Be kind and patient. Invite Asher to play

As I did, Asher needs a little nudge from an interested party when it comes to socializing. If he tells you "no" when you ask him to play, don't be hurt. He may be overwhelmed or preoccupied with something he is doing by himself. Ask again later in the day or the next day. Invite him over to play. Do something you both can enjoy.
