Shyness, lack of confidence, anxiety, and alienating behaviors can make it difficult for some children to make friends. Coach, speaker and author, Caroline Maguire, joins Ned to share some of the practical ways parents and caregivers can help improve a child's social skills. Caroline offers specific activities that can be done at a mall or family party that will give children of all ages the skills they need to make progress in their social life. Her new book, Why Will No One Play with Me? The Play Better Plan to Help Children of All Ages Make Friends and Thrive is highly recommended by Dr. Hallowell.
