Overview

The Shy Child: Helping Children Triumph over Shyness by Ward K. Swallow

Good news! Shyness is not a disorder; it's the personality style of 40 percent of all children and young adults. Shyness has its good side: Your child is probably imaginative, perceptive, and thoughtful. Yet shyness can hinder a child's development. This authoritative, interactive guide is the first book to focus on the problems of shyness and provide parents and children with pragmatic, step-by-step solutions. It will help you achieve wonderful results -- stronger, warmer relationships with family and friends, and, most of all, a happy, empowered, less fearful child who looks confidently to the future.

Discover:
-- The signs of shyness in children, from infancy to adolescence
-- How the shy child responds physically and mentally to stress
-- How your child's artwork reveals his or her emotions, and how drawing together can reinforce trust and understanding
-- Scriptwriting, rewriting, role-playing, and rehearsing -- important tools for the shy child
-- Why shy children are so vulnerable to bullies and how best to intervene
-- How to teach your child to cope with anxiety-producing situations and more.
