I have a 4 year old son who is painfully shy. He is fine at home with people and at school but if we go anywhere other than that forget about it. I am just wondering if this is a normal stage at this age. He is enrolled in soccer this year and it took him awhile to warm up but ended up actually participating in the first practice! Then we did a workshop with his team that had lots of kids and he just sat there with his hands in his mouth and wouldn't do anything for the hour and a half. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to help him overcome this fear? Thanks!
