Hi my 8 year old son does not like to go outside and really struggles with communicating with others and likes to be alone a lot. I don’t no what to do should I leave him to sit in a bedroom on his own for hours every day or should I try and force myself and others on him and when he says can you just go should I leave him I don’t no if it’s healthy to be alone like that for as long as he is ! But he hates people around him I’m so stuck !
