I am having 6 yr old boy. he is timid . Apart from school he is not interested in joining in any of the other activities, summer camp or any other class. he is best in drawing but he fears about the class. What shall do ? how to get rid of his fear and how to make him social? pls help me out friends.

Just give him time. My son is very similar that he didn't want to get involved in anything. This year for first grade we told him he had to try something so we signed him up for cub scouts. It was great because it's an activity that requires parental involvement so he didn't feel like he was alone. Now this spring he decided he wanted to do soccer. Try to find an activity that you can do with him or volunteer as an assistant so he is comfortable.

He may also do better in one on one situations not everyone likes to be around groups of people, so try to set up play dates with a classmate.
