My 5 year old boy started school last year. Since he was a baby He was very quiet never cried unless he felt sick, he was a dream baby. But Now that he has started school I'm concerned, when he started school he was happy, but after a few months I noticed he was more quiet, he wanted nothing to do with the family, always playing by himself, cried for just about anything, always looked sad and wasn't that enthusiastic about going to school anymore, he is not the type of kid that fights or argues. I always asked him how school was and he always said it was ok. after I moved him to another school he told me that at the other school the kids used to pick on them and hurt him all the time, I went back and question the teacher and she had nothing to say. I don't know what to do to make him more social, and help him make friends. it breaks my heart to see him by himself at the playground. Please any advice will help!!Answer Question
I was like that too, but you can't push it and most likely he will grow out of his shyness. Find out if he has a friend in school and try to set up some play-dates.
