Expose your child to as many activities as they show interest in. They should not be expected to fulfill YOUR dreams. If you support their interest(s) it can grow into a lifelong passion. In turn, they will bond with others who share that interest.

Americans seem to value extroverts more than introverts. I came out of my shell when I found friends and activities that I liked (high school). And it just took off from there. Perhaps shy kids are just pickier about whose company they keep.

Have patience. Let the child thrive where they feel comfortable. Never push too hard but always encourage to try their hardest (whatever that may be).

Participate in sport activities as being in a team will bring out the best in shy kids.

well, i am shy when i am new, but i think the best way to usher a child out of shyness is to put the child in the class THEY want, and try not to move around the US to much. then your child keeps having to leave their friends,comfort zone,and teacher

Sign them up for a extracurricular activity that they wouldn't normally ask for. Get them out of their comfort zone.

Find out what interests the shy child and build from there.

Join a smaller group such as Boy Scout and Girl Scouts. These groups encourage a child to be success in a smaller group first and expands their world as they are comfortable.
