Although not a measure problem as the child grow, he/she will become slightly extrovert.....but it really becomes problematic at the time of their school admissions when they are called for interview etc...

Try to make the child independent...and let them have the chance to speak whenever they are asked not reply on their behalf...and leave them alone with new people and watch them behind the curtain........ I think it is the common habit of most of the children to behave girl 1 1/2 years old do the same.

Your daughter certainly seems very capable. There isnt anything wrong in being shy! Encourage her gently to participate in programs. Let her participate in grp events first and then you can think of solo participation. My kid was extremely shy too with the family an teachers encourging him, he is way better now.

It is common among many small children. Try to ask her or know the exact reason whenever she speaks fine. Make her to mingle with other kids whenever possible. Take her to small parties often or take to your friend’s house and make her to play with other kids. This might help her to change the habit.

Introvert Child
Initially try to make her comfortable in a smaller circle of friends may be some one or two then slowly extend it to 5 and more. I’m sure your child will get socialize soon. I heard this idea from one of the parents in my kid’s school Orchids International. Also, take her to some play area nearby so that she gets to play with kids her won age.

Preschool Suggestion
Hello Vidya! It is the right age for pre school. Try to invite some children of her age to your home and conduct small games. Also, I am sure that she will start mingling with other children. My neice started mingling withe others once she started going to school - Orchids International. She was extremely shy before she joined school. Good Luck!

The child is free and open with immediate memebers of the family and exhibits shyness towards unfamiliar people - what is there to worry about this? It is very natural and I don' t think there is any cause for concern here! After all, he is just being well behvaed in front of others. Don' t worry unduly about such things.
