Journalist Molly Lopez asked three experts about parenting shy kids in a recent article in Highlights Magazine. Of course, children each are born with different temperaments; even two siblings can vary in how shy or outgoing they seem.

Lopez summarizes the practical advice she gleamed from experts, including Dr. Levine, and writes:

Reserved kids can make friends and be successful without abandoning their inborn nature….your guidance and support can help your reticent child gain understanding, friendship, and confidence, paving the way to social success. But remember to take it slowly, watch for cues from your child, and refrain from stepping in.
