How to overcome shyness to make friends

Is the problem to adapt to new environments the shyness of the smallest? Is this the reason that makes it difficult for children to create a group? These are some tips that are offered from the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu to overcome this sensation:

- Do not force him. "Say hello", "do not hide", "go play with the children". The reaction of some parents to the shyness of their child is to insist that it be open and to urge him to have a behavior for which he is not prepared. "The best we can do when the child acts with shyness is not to insist, force or force, the more we say, the less we will get," says Sara Tarrés, author of the maternity blog My mom is a child psychologist.


- Avoid overprotection. Overprotective parents take the floor in their child's name and come to comfort him every time he shows withdrawal. This, however, does not help the child overcome his shyness little by little. It is also not advisable to avoid at all costs situations that may be uncomfortable for the child, since social isolation only increases the problem.

- Do not tag. Labels to minors are dangerous. It is not advisable to shield from others the attitude of the child with the classic "is that he is very shy." In a new situation, it is better to let it relax little by little, until you accept it normally.

- Sociable parents, sociable children. If the children observe that their parents adopt a behavior and a sociable attitude in the face of new circumstances (they do not show themselves inhibited, or withdrawn when they meet someone or arrive at an unknown place), they will learn and assume this way of acting with all naturalness.

- Opportunities to interact. Remaining to eat or go out with other families with children your age, invite a friend to eat or sleep at home, join a team sport or go to the park frequently are some of the opportunities that parents can offer their children shy to practice their social skills. It is important to accompany him at the beginning to provide him with the security he needs and, little by little, to allow him to adapt naturally to new situations.

- Recognize their merits. A small uninhibited gesture is an important effort for a shy child. Therefore, it is important for parents to value their positive attitudes towards shyness and to recognize with words the merit of the child. This recognition will help you trust your abilities and will make you feel more secure in future occasions.
