My oldest ds is nearly 5. He is a lovely little boy, but like me and nervous of trying new things. I'd like to encourage him to try new activities - his friends do gymnastics or football for example. However he's resistant as he's scared to try. He has never been confidant.
Also can anyone recommend any good parenting books for this age and next few years? Just typical child issues, hates losing, bossing friends around etc and I'd just like to get parenting help!!
Thanks thanks I feel like a lousy mum as I'm not a natural at dealing with these things - see he's just like me!

I can't answer you because my DD is the total opposite.
I think you'd be better putting this in parenting or chat to be honest.
Good luck.
