SS’s weird “Phobia”???!
SS13 spends 50/50 between our house and BM's. Now SS was never what you would call a Outdoorsy type kid. Back in March when schools shut due to COVID-19 SS started really Resisting going outside. DH would Literally have to force SS to go outside to get fresh air. At first SS told us he was afraid of catching the virus. But when we explained it was virus free in our private back yard he then just said he just does not want to go outside.
Now once we can get SS to go out back to kick the soccer ball or play with the dog he seems to have a good time. But it's SUCH a HUGE deal to get him to do it and very Emotionally draining. This happens EVERYTIME we want him to go outside even to just sit on the pouch.
SS is even worse at BM's. She can't get him to do ANYTHING outside.
Now I'm just wondering if SS is using Covid19 as a Scape goat to get out of going outside since he was never big in it. Or could he really have some Weird phobia about getting the virus???
Thoughts and opinions please?
