"I have been waiting for a book like this to be written. The special needs of shy children have been ignored for too long. The Markways share their tremendous understanding of childhood social anxiety, and have given us a gem of a book that every parent, teacher, pediatrician, and family friend of a shy child should read." --Murray B. Stein MD, MPH, co-author of Triumph over Shyness: Overcoming Shyness & Social Anxiety"The Markways understand that some children are just shy while many others experience the impairment of social anxiety, selective mutism and/or school refusal. They've created a practical guide for parents to help all such children to 'be all they can be.'" --Christine Stanley, Executive Director, Selective Mutism Group - Childhood Anxiety Network"This book should be required reading for all who work with shy children. Teachers will gain sensitivity toward the children and many techniques on how to better work with and support the children and their families. I wish this book had been available when I directed an early childhood program. It is easy to think back to how we could better have helped Jonathan, Alana, Brianna, Brian...." --Kathy R Thornburg Ph.D, Director of the Center for Family Policy & Research, University of Missouri"The Markways are wonderful writers who have demonstrated the realities that individuals suffering from anxiety endure. They have the unique ability to touch others by the stories in their book, and can explain the various anxiety disorders that enable a thorough understanding. I highly recommend this book!" --Elisa Shipon-Blum DO, President & Director, Selective Mutism Anxiety Research & Treatment Center; CEO & Executive Medical Director, Selective Mutism Group Childhood Anxiety Network, author of Understanding Katie
