I think probably the best person to answer this question is your pediatrician. Have you talked to them about it? I am certainly not a doctor, not in the least little bit, but I can tell you that my kids acted the same way at three. They were just shy and came out of their shells as they got older. But, if this is concerning you, you should most definitely talk to your pediatrician. Hang in there! Jen
Children that young are still developing and go through all kinds of stages. I defintely wouldn't worry about any kind of anxiety disorder at this point. Certainly keep an eye on her as she grows and address any concerns you may have with your pediatrician. She just may need some extra encouragement and time to grow.
