@2sprightlyboys I have add and often feel that way too. I don’t think it’s really that we feel uninterested, we’re just afraid of failing. In my case, my motivation (ironically) is failing, having people tell me that I’m not good enough, and etc. Yet, something that holds me back from trying/doing something I’m interested in the ridicule of others. Naturally, I’m a very self conscious person and I’m very insecure. But when my drive for something is so great, its like I’m unstoppable. Maybe your son, like in my case, is afraid of failing and being ridiculed for it.
