hi all, my oldest daughter is 5 and in senior infants.. she is very caring, loving but also quite shy and can be a bit in ur face sometimes.. yesterday we were at a girl in her class bday party and i noticed wen she tried to talk to the other girls they would just walk away from her now all these girls are her class mates aswell. does this mean they are like that in schoo too?? i have asked the teacher if she gets on well with them all and she said yes she is great with them all but yesterday told me a diff story.. she didnt looked bothered bout it but i came home and was so upset i was nearly crying as just felt so bad for her.. we have just started her in irish dancing class to try get her out of the shyness but i think the problem is she wants to be around me and her daddy all the time which can not be healthy. i dont want her to not have friends god she'll need them wen she older. so any advice wat i should do, or anyone else's children are like this, would be much appreciated

I haven't had to deal with this but, maybe if you put together some play dates with some of the children in the class or any kid for that matter. I think the more you get her out the better. I am sorry your little girl has to go through this..breaks my heart, no child deserves to feel down. I dont think the other girls would ignore her if they felt she would play? i hope everything goes well for you all.
