DH is right about helping socially. But if DS has a couple of sports he likes--tennis, swimming--why not let him concentrate on them, since they will later turn into team sports. FWIW, my ds was NOT ready for team sports at 6, but we started him at 8, and he'd matured enough that he was much more comfortable. [ Reply | More ]

Team sports are inappropriate before 4th grade. Give him plenty of free time to play outside and make up his own games. That said, nothing wrong with casually kicking a ball around with dad, if he likes it. Then he can have a skill level about up to par with those kids who did start on teams earlier. [ Reply | More ]

Happens once a month now in the US - at least. School shootings are old news now, sad to say.
