Lots of children feel shy when they don’t know what to do or what to say. It might take them a while to warm up and feel more sure about talking to adults and joining in with other children. And sometimes a child just might like being on their own and playing alone.
There may, however, be times when children do want to speak up or join in but don’t know how to get past their shyness. And sometimes, their shyness might hold them back and make them miss out on things or endure rather than enjoy events.
Don’t Hide Because You’re Shy helps children learn to be more confident and comfortable around other children and grown-ups. It suggests ways children can overcome their shyness in a variety of situations.
Each book in the ‘Kids Can Cope’ series is backed up with practical activities for the child to complete and discuss, consolidating and personalising learning, plus extra notes for parents or teachers.
Supports PSHE teaching in the National Curriculum, and encourages both self development and empathy for others, while fostering resilience and giving advice on how to seek help.
