My daughter is in grade 11. She is smart and hard-working and gets good marks. She is an introvert by nature. Although she has lots of friends and is happy socially, she becomes very anxious when she has to present in front of the class. Unfortunately the courses she has chosen based on her interests, like psychology, media and law, require many presentations. She has had to present at least once a week since September. This is causing her real anxiety - shaking, crying etc. in the morning before she leaves for school. I explained the idea of "exposure therapy" to her and suggested that it should get easier as she gets more practice, but in fact she seems more overwhelmed the more she has to do this. I suspect that each bad experience she has at the front of the class makes it harder to get up there the next time. I urge her not to take it so seriously and not worry if she messes up, but that advice doesn't help either. Can any teachers (or other smart folks) please provide some guidance about how I should deal with this? Many thanks.
