My thoughts would be to try to talk to him about it if he will. If he wont, I would maybe go into his school and talk to the counsler there and see maybe if they can observe his behavior and maybe see if this is a start of a social disorder. I actually have someone in my family that was exactly like this and when they became an adult, it was terrible...they couldnt even go shopping at the grocery store because they were afraid that someone they knew would see them out in public...it is called social anxiety...its a type of phobia that takes over a person. I would def watch this so he doesnt miss out on alot of things in life. good luckView Thread
