hoping someone can help me because i cant find the help or advice i need,so ive joined this site.....my 12 year old daughter chelsea-lea is painfully shy, shes so low on confindence,self esteem, she dosnt make eye contact with people, she dosnt speak to people, if someone asked her a question,she,d look at me to answer for her, she always looks uncomfortable in herself, its sad to see ;o( were a really really close family, and shes comfortable around me and her sister, but nobosy else, not even people she sees on a daily basis, she has got friends, but she picks the friends who are equally as shy, dont know what to do because i can see it getting worse! shes absolutely stunning, naturally beautiful, I wish she felt it xx

Ok, I was just wondering. You said that she has low self esteem, no confidence, and that she looks to you to answer for her. Shyness is normal, but, that isn't and it isn't ok.

We talk about everything! Were sooo close, were like 2 best friends, shes happy to talk to me about everything nd anything, we dont have any drama in our lives , we have ya normal everyday happy family life! We've been to chat to a health visitor today and she said chelsea-lea,s just a shy girl, she finds school daunting,nd there are alot of big personalitys there that cause chelsea-lea to be quiet nd keep herself to herself! Chelsea-lea even says shes absolutely fine,shes just quiet!! Maybes its just what it is,shes a shy quiet 12yr old!! My sisters 31, and has been shy all her life, she still shy now! x

What's going on in her life that would cause her confidence and self esteem to be low? It has to be something, kids aren't born that way. Have you talked to her about it?
