30 Minute Mom – How to Parent a Shy Child – Part 2 – Help Your Child Warm up, Open up, and Join the Fun!

If you are the parent of a shy child, it can be painful to watch him struggle. The key is to help him work with, rather than against, his natural tendencies, says today’s guest, Bernardo J. Carducci, Ph.D., author of The Shyness Breakthrough and director of the Shyness Research Institute at Indiana University Southeast. In this interview, you’ll learn what shyness is, whether or not children are born shy, what triggers the shyness response in children, how you can help your shy child make new friends, join in conversations, and succeed in interviews if he has to be tested for a special school program. If you have a shy child, you won’t want to miss today’s show!
