About the book

Does your child appear nervous and isolated in social settings?

Perhaps they find it difficult to approach other children or make friends?

Do they seem to avoid engaging in hobbies and activities?

These could all be signs that your child is struggling with shyness.

This practical guide combines cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness methods with simple activities to help your child overcome shyness. It’s aimed at children aged 7–11 because a lot happens in these years that can impact a child’s confidence, not just now but for years to come.

Your child will be guided, with the help of Jem – a friendly and supportive character they can identify with – through fun and engaging activities which are interspersed with useful tips, inspirational statements and practical information for parents.
