Hello Doctor, My son is 3. 7 years old. He is having a habit of listening to stories every night before sleep . But if some day we tell him to tell a story in our mother tongue also.... he gets upset and says no. He knows the story very well but refuses to come up and dosent have confidence at all. please guide us how to build up his confidence level and make him speak up. Other wise he is very very talkative and dosent not speak up when we ask him to tell some short story which he knows.

Some children are naturally shy. The worst thing to tell them is 'don't be shy' go and talk . It is essential we accept our child's temperament and help them navigate through their surrounding. Your child may be more sensitive and aware hence understanding from his perspective is important. Emulate confident behaviour and social skills at home Please read this blog, this may be of help. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/my-child-is-shy-what-do-i-do/497 All the best and do keep us posted. I hope these give you some ideas.
