Out of her shell

Thursday, April 18, 2013 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

My daughter (two years old) and I attended our first ever Gymborre class almost a week ago. Prior to registering and attending, I realized that I needed my daughter to be more socialized and to feel safe and confident to interact with other (new) people. My child is outspoken and very playful at home, but in public and around new people, she becomes quite an introvert with bouts of tearful fits and refusal to leave my hip. Upon arrival, I began wondering if this social anxiety would return. My daughter played by herself for a few minutes while our new classmates arrived and mostly stuck by my side. However, by the middle of the class, I was actively chasing her around, watching her speak, respond and interact with the wonderful instructors, children and other parents!!! It was great to see how much her confidence had grown in just that short amount of time. After that one class, I knew that we had to register for more classes and make Gymboree an integral part of our weekly schedule.

Class Type: Play & Learn 5 (22-28 months)
City: Baltimore
State: Maryland
