Re: Shy kids
you don't NEED to do anything. Just love her the way she is. I was always this way as a child. I know it's difficult to watch but just encouraging her but not pushing her and being there for her. Let do things in her own time. Some children need more time to warm up to other people and activities. Have you heard about sensory processing disorder? I would seriously look into that. Also the book " Your Highly Sensitive Child " might help if you look into that. Trying to "change" her is NOT going to work and only make her more frustated. Some people really ARE introverts and there is no reason to try to make them more extroverted. Some people need more time than others to get used to things . The sensory processing disorder is something that goes undiagnosed alot.
