Anyway, today I brought him to see kids playing soccer. I thought I want him to play together with other kids after watching. He doesn't want to go when we arrived there, and when we were about to leave he said he wanted to play. So I brought him to the entrance, but he didn't want to play. How I feel during that time, only god knows. So we both just sat down and watched. But sitting down for him just didn't work, he kept saying he wanted to play but he didn't go in. Instead whining and screaming during the whole sitting. It was quite embarrassing. When everyone finished he wanted to play. And continue crying because everyone else stopped playing.
He is 3 years and 4 months old. I know it may be still early.
But this isn't first time I brought him to this kind of thing, I brought him to music class, even in other kids birthday party he will act the same. I wonder if he is sort jealousy with other kid's party. Or having low self esteem to mix with other kids. Or he is the loner type... like to do thing by himself instead of in group, even adult also has preference.
Other than this, I think he is a normal pre-schooler. Sounds like I am desperate mother eh? I am not being kiasu for my child to play soccer. But the social skills is important, I just don't want him to become sombong or whatsoever. Pushing him hard, may be.
And I have been reading this, so I thought I am sharing with the the other mommy. I will try again next week for the soccer class. Let's see if he wants to mix with other kids... ^~^ I won't give up!
