My soon to be six year old had talked me in to having him play soccer again. This is the third season. First season he participated in practice cried at the games but played in each game after the first quarter. Second season starting crying at the practices so we just took him out, thinking he just might be too young. Well, he begged to play with his best friend, and well, last night he was crying so hard at practice, I had to sit him down on the sideline. I don't want to teach him to be a quitter, but it's suppose to be fun.
He's not shy and has friends on the team. He easily gets intimidated and quits at other activities. He says there are too many people watching and he doesn't want them to watch him.
Should I tell him to suck it up and that he made this commitment, hoping it will get easier. Or do I pull him out, hoping as he gets older, this will pass?
