With the right kind of care and attention, every child has the chance to overcome his or her shyness. "Nurturing The Shy Child" provides parents, teachers, guidance counsellors and other concerned adults with the latest information and practical tools that they need to help shy and socially anxious kids. This book covers the entire shy spectrum - from shyness in only certain situations to social anxiety disorder - and provides proven methods adults can use to ease the child's discomfort, tailored to specific ages and levels of anxiety. Unlike other books on shyness, "Nurturing The Shy Child" also offers much needed information on problems that can go along with shyness and social anxiety, including depression, school anxiety, separation anxiety, excessive worry, selective mutism, and more. Written by psychologists Barbara and Gregory Markway, co-authors of "Painfully Shy" and respected experts in the field, this book's sensible and reassuring tone goes a long way toward preventing needless suffering in children and offers their parents some long-overdue hope.

Review:

"I have been waiting for a book like this to be written. The special needs of shy children have been ignored for too long. The Markways share their tremendous understanding of childhood social anxiety, and have given us a gem of a book that every parent, teacher, pediatrician, and family friend of a shy child should read." --Murray B. Stein MD, MPH, co-author of Triumph over Shyness: Overcoming Shyness & Social Anxiety

"The Markways understand that some children are just shy while many others experience the impairment of social anxiety, selective mutism and/or school refusal. They've created a practical guide for parents to help all such children to 'be all they can be.'" --Christine Stanley, Executive Director, Selective Mutism Group - Childhood Anxiety Network

"This book should be required reading for all who work with shy children. Teachers will gain sensitivity toward the children and many techniques on how to better work with and support the children and their families. I wish this book had been available when I directed an early childhood program. It is easy to think back to how we could better have helped Jonathan, Alana, Brianna, Brian...." --Kathy R Thornburg Ph.D, Director of the Center for Family Policy & Research, University of Missouri

"The Markways are wonderful writers who have demonstrated the realities that individuals suffering from anxiety endure. They have the unique ability to touch others by the stories in their book, and can explain the various anxiety disorders that enable a thorough understanding. I highly recommend this book!" --Elisa Shipon-Blum DO, President & Director, Selective Mutism Anxiety Research & Treatment Center; CEO & Executive Medical Director, Selective Mutism Group Childhood Anxiety Network, author of Understanding Katie
