How to handle shyness or socialization issues?
Posted: May 01, 2019
Few things pull the heartstrings more than seeing your child standing alone after all the other kids have gone off for after school play dates.
Or finding out that at school your child is eating lunch alone.
Or watching your teen sulk around the house on weekends because he/she has no one to hang out with.
So how do we handle it ? Make them confident!
We have them practice standing in front of the room, have them practice talking with students and adults. We ensure they are standing tall, making eye contact, and speaking in a loud, clear voice.
In a few weeks, fear of socialization will be a thing of the past.
Our students are comfortable walking tall, speaking up, and shaking hands with anyone.
