Got a Shy Kid? Here's How to Help Him Make Friends

The following article was published in iVillage.com and includes ideas from Candi Wingate.

Sign Up and Lend a Hand

Join and participate in a local organization as a family. Faith-based and community-focused groups -- art centers, museums, community gardens -- offer ample opportunity to connect with families in your community and can help expand your child's social network, says Candi Wingate, president of Nannies4Hire.

You can also create your own friendly, volunteer project to help your kids make friends. Daniel Rothner, founder of the Jewish service organization Areyvut, says service is a fun way to get to know each other.

Try these:

  • Plant a garden at a local nursing home.
  • Organize a park clean-up.
  • Sell lemonade and donate the proceeds to you favorite charity.
