my son s an introvert by nature,, thought he wil get over it once he is in school,,, but seems to be going opposite,, his school is getting ready for its annual day celebs and he is being trained to dance,, but the moment he comes back home and i ask him about it , he flatly refuses to dance on stage and tells me all that he wil do on stage is cry out for me,,, does he really mean it??? wont he ever get over the stage fear in him?? what can i do to help him??

Quoting Valerie:

For this specific problem, I would say talk to his teacher about having him in the back for his first stage performance. that might be less intimidating. As for his being shy, it's not a bad thing. I was very shy growing up, but it also made me much more observant of people and a great listener. I didn't truly break out of my shell til college. Maybe he never will, but encourage him to make friends through his strengths. Maybe he's a good listener or helper. Main thing, just know that being shy is not necessarily a hinderance in life, just stretch him in his comfort zone slowly and he will eventually get there!


 hey thnx,,, yup he indeed is a very good observant and a grt listener,, wil ask his teacher to put him in th bk row,, hope it helps,,

have you tried speaking to his teacher about it? i think that would be the best place to start and work with his teacher on ideas to boost his confidence on the stage. :)
