Having a shy and reserved child can often be a worry for parents. In this situation you fear your child may not develop to their full potential nor interact well with others which will impact the rest of their lives. That’s why it is important that information, help and advice is available in order to help build your children’s self esteem and confidence straight away. These top tips provided by Dr Victoria Samual from Super nanny expert are great tips to have, so we at The Sing Stars MK Project have provided her list for you,
2. If your child is upset or fearful, accept feelings with warmth and concern: “it sounds as if you’re feeling nervous, that’s understandable”.
3. Normalise doubts by talking about a generic other: “everyone feels unsure from time to time” or by referring to situations you find daunting and how you attempt to overcome them: “sometimes I feel worried about speaking up at work, but I always make and effort and feel good afterwards”. Use story books to introduce themes of facing fears or overcoming challenges.
But to help your little ones along, perhaps a childrens activity group might help. I would recommend perhaps a group drama club, or singing school. For parents near Buckinghamshire why not try Sing Stars MK.
