my son, soon to be 4yo, is very "lazy" sort to speak. He, unlike other kids, is not interested in getting himself dressed, he likes when mommy does everything for him, from his head to toe. Lack of independance for him goes arm in arm with a lack of being adventeruous. That's how i see it. He does not try new foods, tries to be bossy rather than to listen... ; other than that he's very creative with his toys and games. Sometimes I mention "Wow, what a big boy" or "isn't it great, you did it all by yourself", but it does not repeat often. My assusmption is he's scared when put in a new situation or prefers not to bother. His comfort level is set low. I'd do everything it takes for him to be more brave when trying new stuff. Any advice would be very appreciated.
