Shy Girl Dancing

It is understandable that kids have all kind of fears. For Sarah, seem like her biggest fear is to socialize and playing with other kids. I am not sure if she is timid by nature, but we really hope she’s able to overcome her shyness to have great time making friends.

Therefore, we try to help by arranging her to attend some activity classes to boost up her confidents (as we think it is still too early to enroll her to kindergarten).

We’ve actually went for trial class last week at a music studio in the neighborhood (and she enjoy it). The class mainly consists of children at Sarah’s age, which is good for her to mingle around easily.

Then, yesterday we went for our first class.

Sarah was comfortable at the reception area initially, but later she burst into tears when being asked to go into the classroom (to our surprise); she just wanted to stay outside.

I have no choice but to get daddy into the room together with her. Sarah sat real close to daddy at the corner when the class started; she left me alone by dancing and singing with other kids and mommies.

After much persuasion, Sarah was finally okay to join me in the group (and watching daddy sneak out of classroom)…we really hope she will do better in coming classes.

P/S: Just wondering did any mommies know of playgroup available in Kemuning or Subang area? I would love to let Sarah join too.

I think Sarah will get use to it very soon and dancing to the night. :)

Girl are a bit more shy. Give her time and she'll be the dancing queen.

Kristie said...

Sarah just takes a bit more time to warm up, don't worry, she'll be fine :)

Playgroups are normally organised by mummies themselves around the vicinity.

wenn said...

i remember my little girl would stay outside the hall while the lesson was on..then i switched her to a smaller kindergarten..

Oliveoylz said...

Given time, Sarah will definitely make lots of friends...Great that mummy is giving her a headstart by exposing her to trial classes...what about ballet?

Merryn said...

Playgroup in Kota Damansara area. Anybody? Dont worry, Sarah will warm up. Ethan's not good with groups too. :D

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

I hope that Sarah able to make more frens from the class.
Actually she has started her actual class on last week.
I wonder do ballet class accept a young toddler like Sarah?

You mean your dotter also went to music classes before when she was a kid?
Yea, I guess kindy is the best place to let Sarah mix around with frens, but I will only sent her there in the year 2011. :-)

I have to agreed with you that Sarah really needs time to warm up and that will be a lot of time.
Kristie, perhaps you and I can form a playgroup too since we both live quite near to each other.:-)

Kathy, Superman:
I hope that Sarah will enjoy her dancing class and sooner she can dance and sing with me as I love these hobbies very much, hehe.


Julie and Lynette:
You both also looking for playgroup for your boys?
Actually I am not sure what should be prepare or should have at a playgroup. So I am not sure my place or me can be a good organiser.
Any suggestions?

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

You also looking for playgroup for Ethan?
I guess he is so much better than Sarah in terms of making frens.

Mummy Gwen said...

Joanne, your post reminded me of Gwen when I brought her to a trial music class. She was scared too. At 2 years plus, Gwen was very shy and timid. She needs time to warm up. She is still a bit shy now but getting better already.

It's good you enrol Sarah to a playgroup. Gwen hasn't joined any yet. I'm still looking for kindies for her.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mommy Gwen:
Gwen also went to the similar music class before?
I really hope Sarah will be getting better soon.
Yea, I also can see that Gwen becomes more a sociable girl. Good good good!
Good luck in your kindy hunting.

Lydia said...

I think Sarah is slow-warm-up type of child, few more times will be ok.

If we live near to each other, we can organise play session together! Btw, if you wanna organise one, I can give you some ideas. I did that as weekly assignment when I was doing my early childhood study.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Hi Lydia, glad to see you here. How is your confinement?
Yea, I remembered you posted a topic in MP before about playgroup and I am sure you have a lot of knowledge about it. And of course I wish I am staying near with you at Penang, but too bad I am not:-(
I would appreciate if you can share some ideas about playgroup.
Thanks in advance.

agnes said...

hey Joanne.. may I know where is the musikgarten that you send Sarah to? since am staying in Subang and would like to know more too.. :)

ChloeRuoyi said...

I think it's quite common for kids to be shy in nature. Chloe is one of them too. She even needs time to warm up to cousins whom she meets quite often! I really hope she'll grow out of it once she attends kindy next year.

lyncpf513 said...

Joanne, I never organize any before too. :) Maybe Lydia could share with us? Joanne and myself also new to this. :) And I am kinda desperate for playmate for my boys. He is already 2 plus and I guess it's very important he learns to socialise.. :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Actually I have got some info from my fren about a playgroup, which is organised by a church situated at USJ1. So I am trying to get more info from her and see whether I could arrange Sarah there. Are you interested about it?

You are interested to send Chloe to Musikgarten too?
Actually the music studio is located at Kota Kemuning, which is very near by my place.
You may click here to find out the nearest centre at your place.
See you.

For Sarah, she needs very very long time to warm up. Hehe.
Chloe also needs warm up time with frens and relatives? Dont worry, I am sure she will be fine when she attended kindy.

lyncpf513 said...

Joanne, I am certainly interested, provided the time slot is suitable. Can u please forward the info to me pleassssse???????? u can email me at TQ TWQ

little prince's mummy said...

Good wor..

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

I also think that the music class is a good thing for Sarah. Let her learn to mingle with frens.
