Just starting to become active in this circle of moms. Need help!
My daughter has always stayed home ever since she was born. My mom was babysitting her ever since she was 4 months old and up until April of this year. Then I quit my job to stay at home with her and I'm so happy I did this! She is now 21 months old and often acts shy or upset when she sees new people or even family members that she hasn't seen in a while (aunts, uncles, etc). I took her to a Mommy and me kind of gymnastics today in which toddlers her age are suppossed to follow instructions with the help of their mommies. All of the other kids would follow instructions while my daughter Soleil was crying wanting to go do other things. Of course this was her first day and the other kids may have been doing this for quite some time.
Can anyone give any advice as to how I can get my daughter to have less stress when seeing new faces and also to get her to follow instructions at class like the other kids? It would be much appreciated! Thanks
