Hi, My daughter is 3. 3 years. She is very shy. She has a low voice in social settings, when others speak better than her she lowers her voice and stays quite, runs from that place. When Someone asks her questions , even if she knows doesn't reply back. how to handle it ?

I can understand your concern. But i would request you not to label a child or feel bad about the personality trait she is having. It is absolutely ok to be shy. And even shy people can interact well and make their place in a gathering. Its just you try to develop her skills by devoting quality time to her by interacting with her and giving her platform to speak. She eill be more comfortable when she will be equipped with the resources which are required to communicate better. Like instil in her habit of reading story books and when you r alone ask her to narrate the story in her own words, play puzzles with her ask her to read instructions manual with games and narrate you the steps to follow. The more you will communicate with her more she will be confident about herself. Also do not forget to appreciate her on her small achievements. I woulld suggest that you focus on her strengths and soon all her weaknesses will disappear itself. But make sure to remain warm, firm and consistent in your efforts. I hope this would be of help. Take Care
