How do we help our daughter overcome "parent induced" shyness?
My 5 year old daughter is in kindergarten. She is a leader, has many friends, is creative and enjoys school. I recently attended an event at her school where the children would perform songs and dances. She had no problem performing these during school hours, but the moment she had to do this in front of her father and I, she would only cling to us and refuse. This has happened may times before in her previous years. She has no trouble perfoming for us at home, plus she is in a ballet class. Why only in front of us at these events will she not peform? She also will not answer adults when they speak to her in front of us. The moment we leave the room, she doesn't stop speaking. How do we change this? How do we help her?
