Get him treatment : It is probable that you're son is developing a fear of school and of people. If no treatmet by a psychiatrist or psychologist is provided, it is likely that these fears will get worse. It is recommended that he receive cognitive - behavioral psychotherapy and possibly an anti-depressant medication proven work in cases of social anxiety disorder and school phobia.
