hi Vibha Gandhi! some children are sensitive by nature. even a teachers ' stare or simple statement can scare them . talk to her , boost her confidence by reminding her of her strengths. display pictures of her good work, her certificates , her medals on the walls . acknowledge her fears and tell her u can understand how she feels. have Mock drills at home wherein u teach her how to overcome her fears. praise her a lot . above all tell her u r there for her no mater what. hug her often. Vibha with your love , care, attention,persistent efforts and motivation she should soon come around.

hi vibha,you will Hv to knw the reason behind her fears. if she is nt able to tell u will Hv to work out,may be a surprise visit to the school,having a talk to her teachers and friends. I faced a similar problem with my kid. my son was hardly 3 wen he had a bad experience with his care takers. i t took him 2years to overcome it. again the duration depends on different people. it might be a small problem if nt rectified early can lead to a prolonged one. tk cr.
