Annotation: 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.

-- 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.

Publisher Description:
Parents of shy children worry, and with good reason. Shyness can interfere with a child's growth, development, school performance and social experiences. Statistics show that 20% of children are born shy, and another 20% develop shyness. Parents who are shy themselves feel great compassion for their shy children but tend to contribute to the problem by shielding their child from difficult situations. Conversely, parents who are not shy are similarly at a loss and feel exasperated and baffled by their child's shyness. Dr. Ward Swallow addresses both of those situations.
