Advice for my 10 year old shy son
Asked By: Anonymous Views: 1,055 times
My Son is 10 yrs old and We were thinking he is just shy and will be ok in few years, He don’t even answer his attendance or his oral examinations at school and never talked to school teachers though he has 2 or 3 friends to talk at school.. Now teachers feel he is stubborn and adamant to answer the questions or attendance, As we know he is not stubborn or adamant we decided to take to a kids counselor to know what is all behind and came to know after few weeks of observations with my son and discussions with us, they told us its called selective mutism. He is very normal and talks to everyone at my home, with my parents, grandparents, my brother & brother-in-law etc., who are all close family members.. but he will talk to infront of any of our friends or other relatives, for past few months he is just whispers in our ears if he need to say anything to us or the friends or relative.
