Encouraging Your Shy Child to Socialize


Shy behavior is normal among little pumpkins in a weekend daycare in Irvine. This just means that they are a little bit slow to warm up and need a bit more time to lower their walls. There’s nothing wrong with shyness.

Shyness doesn’t magically go away over time, but you can teach your child to be more confident and comfortable when making friends at his or her day care in Irvine. We deal with little cuties all the time in our after hours childcare, so we know a thing or two on how to help them break out of their shy little shells:

  1. Stay with your child in social situations, such as in playgroups, while encouraging him or her to explore. As your child gets more comfortable, you can gradually move away for short periods.
  2. Let your child know that it’s okay to feel shy and that you are there to help him or her.
  3. Praise brave behavior such as speaking to a classmate in their childcare center in Irvine, California, or when they share a toy.
  4. Avoid over comforting. Over comforting might only worsen your child’s shy behavior and may even give him or her the impression that this is a scary situation.

Don’t worry, your child will warm up to his or her classmates eventually. His or her teachers in Little Leaderz Day Care, Inc. will be around to help him or her to get along with others!
