  • Build up her self esteem. Show her by example how to be social. Practise social interactions. Play tea. Play introductions. Play good byes. Play saying thank you. Take her around people. Have fun with it.

  • You CAN'T make your daughter anything. She is who she is. Love her. Enjoy her. Support her in being who she is and don't be so manipulative and controlling. Step back and just accept her.

  • You can't. Maybe she is not meant to be social. Not all children are and pushing her is going to cause her problems. Just let her be and love her for who she is.

  • I think the other responders might have been upset with your use of the word make. I think you just want to help her.

  • I agree you can't really make her social. I think the best thing is to take her to play groups and let her interact with other children. She is still young and as she gets older and starts school you may see a difference in her social behavior.

    Good Luck!
