So we signed Ewan up to play in several soccer games over the next few weeks through his preschool. He was so excited to go get his soccer ball and shin guards and couldn't wait to get there to play.
And this is as close as he got to playing. Once he saw all the people he totally freaked out and wanted nothing to do with it.
I was like this as a kid too, and I remember my mom getting so mad at me. I always said I would never be that way, but I will admit that I was irritated. He said that he was "just watching" this time and that he'll play the next time....I hope so! He asked us to sign him up for basketball this fall and he has 10 "games" coming up starting at the end of September. I really hope he'll participate so we didn't waste that money.
If your kid does this, how do you help them get over their shyness? You would think that I would know what to do since I was the same way, but nope.
At least Cecily had fun though!
