My son is a well adjusted 8 year old. He does well academically and is athletically inclined. The problem is that he will not join a baseball team or football team because he's too scared. He doesn't want people looking at him. He is shy and would just rather blend in with the walls, but I've always thought that in order to grow, one must step out of his comfort zone. If he doesn't face his fears, when will he ever do something he enjoys? Any advice would be appreciated.
