My 21 month toddler is not very social, she is actually quite shy & will throw a fit if being approached by anyone she doesn't know even kids her own age. If I take her to the park she won't even want to walk around, she would want to go from the swing straight to the stroller. If I even attempt to put her on the floor to play and interact with kids she would cry until picked up. She is also not talking. She would say "Da" to anything, she would say "wow" & "shhhhh" since she has seen her favorite cartoons say it a couple of times, but that is all. I am very concerned she is delayed & like I have failed as a mom. I am a stay at home mom & I have taken care of her always. I am one of those moms that if it's raining I won't even take her out, but I feel like confining her has affected her development. Please help, give me any feed back you guys have other than speak to the doctor which is just a typical response. Thank you in advance.
