One of the most heartbreaking experiences for a child is not having friends.  This is also one of the most difficult things for parents to watch their children struggle with.  It's hard to know how to help, or even if we should help. It's hard to know at what age we should stop jumping in.

It's important to remember that the ability to make friends varies from person to person.  There are many factors that determines whether or not a child finds it easy, difficult, or somewhere in-between to make friends.  Some of these factors include the child's temperament (extrovert vs. introvert), family stressors, number of past moves, past traumas, and the age of your child.

This chapter gives practical help for how we can help as parents, what we accidentally do to make it worse, and how to help your shy child. There are plenty of tips for parents and children, with lots of ways to be compassionate with ourselves in the process!  It's easy to claim your free chapter!
