It was like a totally different kid last night!

I wrote a post the other day about my son and how he didn't interact with kids at a birthday party and how he was scared of everything. I was afraid that I was doing the wrong thing by homeschooling him.

I got a lot of good advice in that post (thanks ladies!) and I sat down with my son and we talked for awhile and I asked him if he could just say hi to one kid at each of his classes this week. He said ok and we dropped the conversation.

We went to his first Cub Scouts meeting last night. It's a small little pack. My son is number six. Well there was only two little boys there last night besides my son. So we had our meeting and then the adults were talking and Daemon just ran off with the other kids. He was talking and laughing with them and having a good time.

It was SO nice to see that! It's been a long time since I saw him joining and not hanging back. It made me so happy! I feel a lot better about everything now. I think when he didn't feel pressure to 'perform' and talk to lots of kids he was able to enjoy himself. I feel bad that I've pressured him but now I've learned some and won't make the same mistakes again.

Anyway, just wanted to share :)

Maybe I'm a big marshmallow anyway, but this brought tears to my eyes. That's so wonderful for him (and you)!
