My 5-year-old girl is a gentle sweetie. She sticks to her closest friends in school & loves helping out her friends & teacher in school. But, when it comes to sharing or speaking up to her class, she'll just clam up & her eyes will get watery when prompted by the teacher. She has no problems with school work & shares stories with her teacher only on a personal basis.
She will eagerly prepare her school work at home, but when she brought her work to school, she'll hide them in her bag & unwillingly take them out only after prompted by the teacher.
Pls advise what can I do to help her be more confident of herself. I feel she is capable of so much more, but her timid character is holding her back a lot!
