Boys like her and ask her for dates —but, writes her mother' "She doesn't mind double-dating with another couple she knows well but when a boy calls her up and asks her for a. date by herself she becomes petrified. Most of the time she turns hlm^ down. "Also when she talks to strangers she doesn't life her eyes, but keeps her head down, "If I knew she'd grow out of this t'd'slt by and wait, but I know she Is suffering as much as I bul won't admit it." It's natural for * mother lo want her daughter to have a good time and to worry If she seems so shy that she makes Verself miserable. Because It Is always so easy for an older person to see how crippling such shyness is and yet how simple it should be to overcome it But It isn't a simple problem for *, ,!,""f5 er to ov «c<'nie. And I'm afraid the more a mother shows her .concern over the problem, the more self-conscious the oiri ho comes. K Try '.eitlmr Her Alone t should be worth « long-term * .do* * a; ^ ^poi- if the 'mother doesn't .seem to notice or care whether the daugh- er accepts dates or not and does uuV S T r hcr alienee with strangers, the.daughter may gradually begin to lose some of her fear and tenseness; Double-dating ought to help her, too. She can depend on the other girl to help carry off ihe evening until she has met all sorts of new situations, such as going to certain places to dance, etc.; and knows what to expect. Then, perhaps she won't be so fearful ot striking out on her own. If the girl doesn' f gain In self- confidence during als "hands off" period the mother might feel H necessary to get the opinion of a qualified psychiatrtol. But oftentimes a teen-ager can work out her ow.i problems—If she doesn't .feel that her parents are agonizing over all of her failures.
