Chores Build Successful Adults

Here’s how you can help:

  • Recognise that you are blessed with a sensitive, deeply caring, reserved child who is slow to warm up to strangers, approaches social relationships cautiously, but generally seems to be a happy person.
  • Never label a child ‘shy’ – it makes them feel something’s wrong with them and will probably make them even more shy.
  • Don’t try to reason or coax your child out of their shyness. They will likely react against you. Just create comfortable situations that let their social personality develop naturally.
  • Tell your child ahead of social situations what’s expected of them – a simple, “Hi” and quiet polite behaviour. Give them time to prepare, and don’t ask more than you can reasonably expect. Keep the attention off the child.
  • Be patient. We tend to think of shyness as a social handicap, yet shy children tend to grow up into sensitive, empathetic adults.

If we look at what shyness really means, being a shy child is not such a negative quality after all. Shyness can be a help or a handicap to a child, depending on how it’s handled.

We live in a world that’s loud, fast, and busy. Unfortunately, it can be overwhelming for the shy people among us.

We need to remember that the world is a gentler and quieter place because of them.
