Includes bibliographical references and index.
Lots of people are shy, and there s nothing wrong with that unless you find that your shyness is preventing you from doing what you want. Some people are so shy that raising their hands in class or even simply saying hello to a stranger can be overwhelming. This book looks at the types of social fears that can hold us back and provides advice about how to overcome them. Fear and anxiety are completely normal parts of growing up. Fear keeps us from climbing too high up that tree, while anxiety reminds us that we ought to study for that test tomorrow. But when anxiety gets out of control, it can rob kids of their educations, friends, and happiness. The set Childhood Fears and Anxieties takes a warm, supportive look at these feelings and how they can be managed. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
