I need advice
My son is 10 years old, he's a nice polite boy. The problem is he is very critical of himself. The other day at his little league game he struck out. The two batters before him both struck out. He walked into the dugout crying, he cried the whole time he was in the field. I feel so frustrated, I could care less if he strikes out or misses a fly abll. I just want him to have fun. What can I say or do to get him to lighten up and just play to have fun. Basketball season was the same way, he cried after just about every practice and game. In his mind he was the only player who didn't score, the only player to commit a turnover or foul. I know Im very over protective of him, I just want him to be happy. I guess I'm over compensating for my childhood and I don't want him to be like me. Should I go talk to a professional, should I take him? Should I just let whatever happens happen. I really would feel bad if the other kids started making fun of him. Somebody please help. I really don't know what to do.
