This month's blog is
How Teachers Can Help Children Overcome Shyness
Shyness is a feeling of emotion where a person feels timid or
intimidated in a situation. Many people don't know the basics of this
feeling and tend to get confused that maybe it is in a particular case
that it is triggered. However, shyness is not a temporary early
childhood phase that you can grow out of with time. It is an inhabited
feeling that may start as early as in infancy and may take up your
lifetime to overcome.
According to statistics published in this regard, 10 to 15% of
newborns are born with shyness as an inhabited trait. In addition to
this, 40 to 60% of adults say they are currently still regarded as a
shy person. Thus, these numbers represent that not many people are
born with shyness but develop the feeling over time.
Therefore, to nip in the bud sometime before it fully blooms, this
month's blog covers eight ways teachers can work with their young
students to overcome shyness.
Guest blogger Claudia Jeffrey is currently working as an Assistant
Manager For Research & Development at Crowd Writer. As an experienced
pre-school teacher, she understand feelings associated with the young
ones well. She shares her opinions online through her personal blog.
