Ladies, I need some advice please...
Jace started soccer about three weeks ago (once a week practices). There are a lot of kids (all grouped into mini teams) and he ended up with a really great coach.
Problem: He keeps coming over to me and crying, saying he wants to go home. I keep encouraging him (because he's actually very good!) and telling him that his team needs him. His coach is really nice and encourages him also. So Jace will stop crying and go back out and then he will come back over crying again. I ask him if he feels nervous (he says yes) and I think he feels overwhelmed also, with the amount of people there, and I feel like maybe he has anxiety about it (I was the same way growing up, but once I knew what was going on I felt fine, nonetheless, he got those nervous characteristics from me).
Anyway, what should I do? Am I horrible for making him still play? He loves practicing with me and loves playing soccer, I just don't know if it's the environment that's negative for him? Is he too young and maybe I should try when he is a bit older (he will be 5 in December)?
When he did tae kwon do, he was completely fine.
Thanks in advance!
