An internet-based program to help parents help children with difficulty with anxiety (excessive fearfulness, worry, or shyness).
Is your 4 to 12 year old child more shy or fearful than other children of the same age?
Shyness and anxiety are normal emotions. Some children, however, are much more shy or fearful than the average child. Anxiety may interfere with their enjoyment of school, activities with other children, new experiences (swimming lessons or sports), and their development of independence and confidence. Shyness and anxiety may also slow learning at school.
If you think that your child is more anxious (fearful, worried or shy) than most other children of the same age, you may be interested in Coaching for Confidence, a web-based program developed for parents of children with anxiety by researchers at the University of Manitoba.
