So my son is 3 years and 4 months old. He is very stubborn and is fearful of most new situations. Once he tries something, he usually will like it and be OK within a 10-15 minutes. He is also very attached to us, he goes to daycare, but has been going to the same place for 3 years and feels very comfrotable there. He is very into the other kids there and does everything at day care. He is not a daredevil by any means however.
Anyway, I wanted to try an activity with him because I think it would be good for him. We went to a gymnastics class and it was a little bit of a disaster. All the other kids listened quite well and appeared to be a little older them him(it is up to 5 years old). They were very far ahead of him in their gross motor. I had to follow him around and he would do very little of what they wanted him to do(they did some circle time, stuff on the trampoline, did some forward rolls, etc). By the end, he did walk around each area, doing most of the stuff they wanted him to do. But I had to go with him(all the other parents were waiting outside) and he was being quite defiant.
So, would you push this class or try something else? I dont really care what he does, but we are in a small area. I don't know if there was anyplace better to find...the teachers seemed to not put much effort into encouraging him and the class is one where people join all the time(not like some where they have a start date). I feel like maybe he would enjoy it after a month or so, but I am not sure I want to spend all that money on the off chance it will get better. Sigh.
