Our noisy world sometimes feels like it's not made for shy people. This book will help children better understand their shyness and find their inner voice.
Shyness is often misunderstood. It's not a disability or personality flaw; it's a complex trait with many positive aspects. However, shyness can lead kids to struggle to speak up in class, get involved in activities, make friends, put themselves forward, and compete. As a result they can miss out on fun and exciting opportunities, and are often overlooked, ignored, and sidelined... but it doesn't have to be this way. Shy And Mighty Kids offers a new way of looking at the subject that will help children overcome the aspects of their shyness that are holding them back, without scaring themselves or pretending to be something they are not. Packed with simple tools, techniques, and ideas to help you take small steps to get more involved, share your ideas, and make friends, Shy and Mighty Kids also explores the science behind shyness, the potential cost of shyness, and more. Combining personal experience with extensive research and feedback from parents and kids, Shy and Mighty Kids will help kids go from invisible, to invincible!
