shy child
My son is 5 and just started kindergarten,he's always been a shy child and usually takes time to warm up to someone but its been 2 mnths already and he still will hardly talk to his teacher,he talks and plays with his classmates but as soon as she asks him something he just looks at her with a blank stare.. I get a letter home every week saying he will not talk and I've tried talking to him and even bribing him they want me to tell them what they can do to make him talk to them but I have no clue what do do anymore.

Stop trying to change this. Over time he will loosen up. Such selective mutism takes time to change. The more you push him the more he will resist.
