Shyness isn't just a normal part of childhood that kids eventually outgrow. It's a real problem that can have serious consequences, like poor social and academic performance. If left untreated, shyness can even lead to a greater risk for certain health problems. It can affect career choice, earning potential, and quality of life in adulthood. This workbook gives children sensitive, step-by-step activities to overcome their shyness. By doing the activities in this book kids develop the confidence to speak up, form friendships, and participate in social and group activities. They learn to decode the subtle social cues in body language and facial expressions, so that they feel less awkward in conversation. In Say Goodbye to Being Shy children also learn to recognize and change the self-talk that can drive shyness. They also learn relaxation exercises to diminish the anxiety that goes along with shyness. This book is appropriate for kids between the ages of six and twelve.
