After lockdown go to park for 1 hour for your son. Give some time to play with same age group. He will be confident. No need to worry. Every child is different. Ask him toh play with same ages one like bat ball, badminton, running. You can put him in a dance class, music class or see yours baby interest. Your baby will get confidence. Stay positive.

Hi Ruchi Chauhan ! You can begin with children he is comfortable mingling with such as his agemate in the neighbourhood or his cousins. Invite them home over a play date. Let them be comfortable in their own room. Create opportunities for them to do activities together. Gradually Increase the size of the group by inviting two or more children over a period of time. also you could take him to birthday parties or other social gatherings. Avoid putting pressure on him to speak up or greet people there. let him be. Some children take time to open up and come out of their shell. As long as he has the fear of being judged ,he would not be comfortable mixing up with other children. So try and boost his confidence by praising him for instance if he has interest in art, crafts drawing, etc you could display his work on the walls of his room or hang them with pegs on a rope. this would not only make him feel motivated but also feel confident .do keep giving him positive feedback as and when he does something worth a praise. hope this would help!
