Sometimes, it can be as simple as finding common ground or arriving with someone your child is already comfortable with. Most people feel more comfortable entering new social situations with a partner, so why shouldn’t children? Invite a child around for supper or a play date first to break the ice.

“Many kids will tell me they’ll go to football practice, for example, but only if they know someone who goes there.

In addition, inform the coach if it is a team or club leader, and then you all know what to do if your child gets panicky.

6. Praise and be positive

When your child reaches a new step, praise praise praise and use this when there are struggles, be positive and don’t fall into the negativity trap.

Here is my weekly praise list if you missed it, Free Download, Praise Matters; words do matter, and our language can affect positive change.

7. When to push and challenge and when to step back.
This is hard, but you will have to challenge your child and face discomfort simultaneously. Try not to work on multiple issues; take one step at a time.
Let me know if any of these work for you. Check out my workshops; they are all booked up, but if you want to be contacted first, please contact me. With Love Catherine
