Shy Kids and friends

So my 4 y/o is very shy and doesn't/hasn't made any friends in his class yet. I know he's just 4, but I'm wondering what are some of things you do for your shy child to keep social w/o forcing them to make friendships?

  • try a less intense atmosphere. pick 1 or 2 kids he likes or obviously like him and set up a park playdate or something.

    A class room full of peers can be very intimidating/overwhelming

  • And speak to the teacher. She may know of another child who loves the same things your ds does....dinosaurs/bugs/hopping on one foot, whatever....and she can team them up. Here Joey, let's get out the dinosaur puzzle and show Robert how to do it....that kind of thing....
