Actually, he's probably more anti-social than shy! He loves his teachers and his older brother but doesn't seem to want friends his own age. He does judo at the moment which he seems to enjoy as it's just running about and playing really but I don't think he'll be so keen when it progresses to proper contact.
He's not interested in team sports such as football but I'd love him to do some sort of activity where he can make some friends. Any ideas?
I teach a Creativity and Drama Class for 4-6 year olds at Group 64 in Putney every Monday form 4.15 to 5.15. We have a lovely group of children and play lots of games and use music and drama to tell stories and build confidence. Group 64 offers a free trial to make sure your child enjoys it. You can email them at email@example.com.
Drama i sgood, but if he is too shy he will find it hard to take part I think, depend sif he is self consious.Beavers or cubs or whatever they callit may be more his cup of tea at the moment.I know my daughter wa shy and hated drama/stageschool.We took her to rainbows for a few months and she then went back about a year later and felt more comfortable.If someone is they they hate being the centre of attention.
Agree Beavers sounds ideal, but he's not 6 yet, is he? St. John's Ambulance Badgers would have him at 5.
Judo is brilliant, teaches him to handle conflict especially good if his instincts are not to interact.
Tell you what, my extra shy DD, only cared about 3 people in the world (me, DH, her brother) turned into ultra-confident constant activity girl by the time she was 8yo. But only really got going with any activities just before she turned 6yo.
