THE BIG 3 We Always Hear About


Your child wants to be acknowledged by others but is unable to step into the spotlight.

Does your child avoid social interaction because:

  • She doesn't want to call attention to herself?
  • He worries about being made fun of because of his ideas?
  • She is unable to make friends?
  • He worries about being laughed at or mocked?

Are you worried about your child's shyness? If so, you are not alone. Many parents fret that there is nothing that can be done. But research demonstrates that under the right circumstances, children can conquer social fear. Our classes will build a strong foundation of skills to carry your child into a successful adult life. Sign up now.

Fear of rejection-

Peer rejection and being mocked can cause psychological trauma that shapes a young child’s self-image.

When called to speak in front of others, does your child get nervous and

  1. Avoid eye contact?
  2. Mumble when speaking, or barely whisper?
  3. Speak rapidly to get it over with
  4. Follow others even if they are part of the wrong crowd?
  5. Agree with others without speaking her mind?
  6. Play by himself instead of initiating play with other children?

How many other areas of your child’s life are potentially being affected by a fear of rejection? Have you noticed any mood swings? Has schoolwork suffered? Does your child seem discouraged about excelling? Does your kid prefer to be around less successful friends? These are all telltale signs that your child may fear rejection.

We provide a socially safe environment to turn this fear around for good. For example, for years now our leadership class has not only helped many children overcome a fear of rejection; it has also nurtured a positive self-image within the children’s peer groups. This is key. If you want to help reshape your child’s self-image into a positive one, start here.

Fear of failure- This anxiety keeps children from trying and betting on themselves. If a child doesn’t even “attempt to try” in front of others, it could unfortunately shape all future opportunities into failures.

Does your child take a back seat to other kids by::

  • Pretending to be sick or sad in order to not participate in something new?
  • Crying if asked to try a new sport or activity?
  • Quitting something before giving it a chance?
  • Saying that he doesn’t like something before even doing it?
  • Blaming others for why she doesn’t want to try?
