My 3 year old just started his first "class" last week. It's a sports class for 3 and 4 year olds where they learn sports basics and play games for fun at the end of class. It's one hour a week for 7 weeks.
He just turned 3 over the summer and the class has more 4 year olds than 3's. I am feeling really worried because last night at his second class he stuck out so much from the other kids. He didn't participate in the activities, he just kind of played on his own and didn't follow along with the group. He had fun, and of course this is all I want for him from this but I'm so worried about why isn't he following directions or listening to the teachers. Is this normal for a 3 year old who is in their first group atmosphere? Did this happen with your kids? At home he's such a good listener and he's very smart. Is it just his age? Today I can't shake it off like this is my "fault" that he doesn't want to be part of a group.
