PhotoGal Posted January 7, 2012 Share Posted January 7, 2012 He just turned 8 yesterday. This morning was his first day of basketball at the rec center (super relaxed, just for fun style class). Dh called to say that he is crying and refuses to join in. :sad: He used to be like this in preschool - he wanted to take soccer, but wouldn't join in with the other kids. I think he was intimidated by the large group. We watched the first lesson and he ended up joining in during the second lesson. A few weeks later they changed what field the lessons were on and he again didn't want to play. (This was back when he was 4 or so). In the last few years, he has gotten a lot more comfortable joining in on new things. He was in school for PreK, Kinder and 1st grade. But now that we have been homeschooling for half of a year, it seems like he's gotten used to him comfort zone and again is having trouble with new places/people - at least when he has to go out and do it without us doing it with him. Just wondering if anyone has any advice? I thought he had grown out of this and now I'm worried that homeschooling him is making him less able to go out and try new things. :( (He has been taking classes and so on this year, so it isn't like he has been home the whole time. But he is used to those things and he is used to doing things with his sister all the time). Anyone else go through this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
