BALTIMORE (WMAR) - A new school year means new opportunities for kids to make friends, but children who are shy may have trouble.
Some shy kids actually want to be outgoing, while others simply prefer to be alone.
If you think your child is shy but wants to make more friends, practice can help them come out of their shell.
You can practice situations, go over possible topics of conversation, and discuss how to initiate conversation with other children.
Getting children involved in extracurricular activities can also help them branch out and make new friends.
