  • As a child I was voted most quiet at a summer camp I attended.  Meeting new people terrified me, new social settings were intimidating and it took a while for me to warm up to new people.  As an adult I have moved past this, I am certainly an introvert, but being frozen by shyness is a thing of the past.  For most kids that struggle with shyness- they will, like myself, overcome the struggle as they mature.   
  • Some kids are quiet.  Some kids need transition time when entering new social situations.  Some kids prefer to play alone.  This is okay.  When though, should a parent be concerned that their child's shyness, is a sign of something more serious?  Healthy Children.org our partner site for pediatric content has a great article on shyness and when a parent should be concerned.
