Steven can only summon his shield to protect SOMEONE ELSE.
I don't know of any example where he summoned his Shield that was not to protect someone else except in Gem Glow when he first summoned his shield by accident. Anyone know of another example? He does not have trouble controlling his Shield, he just has not realized yet that he can only summon it to protect someone else.
Steven was seen using his shield to attack Peridot and protect himself in "Friend Ship" and fight in "Nightmare Hospital".
