Performance Anxiety in Front of Mom

by Kim
(Hernando, MS)

My daughter is 7 and just started cheerleading. She begged to do this. I support her and want her to do something she likes. The problem is she will not perform in front of me. She says she is worried I won't like what she does or will laugh at her. ( I have never laughed when she tried something new, and I always try to help her.)


She has fun and does well as long as I am not there. Her coach and teachers tell me this.

Cheerleading is not the only time she does this. If I am with her she will not participate in almost any activity. I don't understand why I make her so nervous.

How can I help her get over her fear of doing things in front of me? Why is she like this only with me? What have I done wrong?

High quality video is always a desire of each and every video lover therefore for watching high quality video you want an app like VIDEODER which gives you a hassle free downloading of movies and others videos from YouTube.
