Ryan started his second season of baseball last month. He had a game yesterday and got to play catcher for the first time, which he informed me he did NOT like.
Every time I tell Ryan it's time to go to a baseball practice or game, he says "No, I'm not going". Every single time. And getting out the door with these three crazy kids can be a true nightmare. So sometimes I want to just say FINE, let's not go! I would never want to force Ryan to play a sport he hates.
But then Ryan seems to enjoy himself once we're at the game. He's not the most enthusiastic player on the field, but he's participating and having fun. Ryan is the type of child who definitely needs a little push. If it were up to him he would sit at home and never go anywhere! I don't want to be an overly pushy parent, but I feel like he just needs that extra encouragement (or forcing) to try things.
