Sometimes my son won't play......he comes to me and says he doesn't want to play anymore. So I'll give him other options, like coloring or reading and he doesn't want to do any of them. Sometimes I'll walk by his room to find him just lying on the floor looking up at the ceiling....doing nothing. Or sometimes I'll hear a toy going off in repetition, so I'll go to his room to find out if it's stuck or something and it's my son just sitting there, pushing the button making the toy go off over and over again. I'll tell him to stop and he will but then he goes back to just laying there because he "doesn't want to play". Now this is not everyday, some days he entertains himself really well and everything is fine.....but somedays it's not. I've tried spending more time with him....today when he came home from preschool, I read to him, 2 of his longest books (and we all have to admit, sometimes we choose the shorter books when they want us to read to them).......anyway, when I finished he want to read more and I told him maybe later and his reply was, "Well, I didn't want to read the ones you read to me." So that irritated me a little, I thought he would like for me to read to him.....that's why I did.......just strange behavior.
Play with him .....maybe he doesnt want to play alone its boring , reading is great however children love games, having Fun we all need some of that , so get out some board games ,you may enjoy them , there is nothing wrong with him he wants some stimulation , how about as weather gets better some outside activities ,ball games, you'd be surprised at the great time you will have its not strange behavior he wants more attention from you and he wants to be with you ,not just in 'his room ' ......
