  • have him create some small goals that he can accomplish. It always feels good when you accomplish things, even the small stuff.

  • Just be supportive and let him vent his frustrations. Ask him what problems and fears he has socially and try to make a step-by-step plan to improve his issues. Always tell him you believe in him and try to find small ways he can use to calm himself. And, try to teach him to avoid the "Yeah, buts...", so he creates confidence and not questions! Good luck and stay strong for him!
