Synopsis

Don't be Shy How to Fit in,Make Friends,and Have Fun - Even If You Weren't Born Outgoing by Claude Clement, Melissa Daly

Don't Be Shy is a reassuring, non-judgemental look at shyness, the causes and the problems it can create for teens. It offers tips for overcoming fears, dealing with different kinds of social and school situations, reacting to criticism, working on self-image, and more. 50 per cent of the population, adults and teens, suffer from shyness. It's important to note that while adults have learned to compensate for shyness, teens struggle with it more actively and feel social anxiety more acutely. This book has a large potential audience.
