My DD just turned 6 years old in April. She is a seemingly happy little girl with many friends. We have a great neighborhood and all the children play on the block together. They are all the same age, and she sees them day in and day out at the bus stop and at school. We used to walk around the neighborhood and stop and play, ride bikes, etc. with the children but all of a sudden she doesnt want anything to so with them.
On two occassions if any of the children or other parents even look in her direction she starts basically melting down into tears, and screams I want to go home. We end up leaving. I am not embarrased by it at all ( after all we all have those days) but have asked her what the problem is and she insists that there is no problem. She has no problem talking to the children from over the fence but I guess is shy around a big group?? Why all of a sudden ?? Has never been an issue in the past, any advice?
