My son is 5 and can not or will not play on his own. It doesn't matter what the activity is he constantly wants someone to do it with him. It seems that the someone needs to be an adult when at home although he will play with his friends quite well if they are here or we are there. Will not play with his little sister but not overly concerned with that as she's only 2. He is not overly anxious other than what I think are normal 5yo concerns such as the dark. He's never been left in situations he wasn't comfortable with and loved kindergarten and loves school.
So that's a bit of background, do you have a child like this and do you have any strategies that could help us encourage him to play and not need constant attention?
