I'm very concerned about my daughters ongoing clinginess and severe nervousous and anxiety around adults and other children. fine with h and I, a happy, very talkative child apart from usual grumpy tantrums etc from an extremely strong willed, bright, almost three yr old. She recently stopped walking down stairs as terrified and we are helping her through that. She has also started grinding her teeth and playing with hair again.
What would gp or hv do? Anyone ever been to them re: worries about their little ones behaviour.
I am also very down. I don't want them to think I'm a bad mum or can't cope. What will they do? I try my absolute best and have always done a lot of reading to ensure I'm handling things well. I have snapped at my little one a bit recently though as she's such hard work and I am so stressed and tired, I have little patience. I feel a failure.
So worried as at last have a few mums who want to get to know us more but I'm in such a state mentally and so is my little girl at the mo. She won't want to be near their kids. One incident recently where she was hit by accident by a little girl and now she won't go near children. . Also worried as she should be starting preschool sept and have meeting with them soon. Anyway, has anyone else sought help over worrying behaviour?

Does she spend much time with other people? When I've worked in nurseries/reception classes in the past there has always been a few children who've not socialised much as toddlers who really struggle to come out of their shell and interact as they are totally unused to being around other children/unfamiliar adults.
I would have a chat with your health visitor if you are concerned, they won't think you are a bad parent but they may be able to offer some advice/support and advise whether or not the levels of shyness are likely to improve once she spends more time away from you or whether it's a more deep rooted problem x

There was some good advice on the similar post you wrote recently. Have you managed to read it? Meeting with the pre-school will be a start and you can explain your daughter's behaviour and go from there.
