If your child is an only child and isn't around children that much you should really look into sending your child to a day care once a week or a play group. There are also clubs for Mom's where you can take your kids to play together. She will loose the anxiety in time.

Dont worry it could just be a phase, keep up the playdates and meet up with friends who have kids, when they see you having fun with friends, they will too.

Make sure that when you go out in public that you stay close to her. She trusts you and will need you to guide her. If she starts getting scared reassure her. Hold her and let her know that you are there and that everything is ok. Also praise her often and tell her that she is doing good.
