My 4-year old daughter seems to be doing ok in school but in the summer, when I introduced different activities for her, I found that she was reluctant to participate in most of them. I believe she lacks self-confidence and is very timid and perhaps social skills training would help. Anybody knows about such classes in English please?
My daughter still enjoys her swimming classes because they are not new to her. But in the one-week sports camp, she only sat there throughout the two and a half hour session to watch other children play. At the end of the week, she was still sitting there without any participation. But she said she liked sports before I signed up for it! In the group skating lesson, the same thing happened. She only sat in her chair in the rink to watch when everybody else were doing what the coach asked them to. My daughter told me that she didnt understand how to move the chair when she was sitting down. But if she was watching other kids do it, why couldnt she at least try? Im really frustrated. Anybody has similar experience? How did you help your child to overcome it?
