Our expert says:
A very sensitive, complex and difficult question, Bibi. As CTMom suggests, there are many possible reasons for the siuation you describe, many of them ather normal, and including a personality disposition towards being solitary and somewhat sad ; and of course, bereavement, trauma, or an unhappy home. As she also points ou, some kids are like this when in company or larger groups, and much more lively and content at home or in small groups. Maybe you could help your child, to invite this child to visit you at home, and se if she is different in a smaller group ; also it might become easier for her to feel safe enough to talk about whether there is anything troubling her.
