Is My Child Too Shy?
February 15, 2017
- 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.
