Super Shy Little Boy

How can I help my 3 year old son not be so shy? He is very talkative and outgoing at home, but when he is leaves the home, he turns into an extremely shy child. I can't get him to play with other kids. He just hides behind me and won't talk. I know he is you, but should he be this shy at 3. Most kids I see will just talk to anyone. He is even shy around people he sees everyday. I'm not sure what I can do to help him not be so shy. any opinions?

This is super normal, my daughter was the same way but she grew out of it. This may also be apart of his personality and this is okay. Don't ever make him play or speak to people that he doesn't want to "at this age". This just shows that he has to be comfortable with a person to express himself.....this is quite okay!!! Maybe bring him around more people more often so he can get use to being around a lot of people. If you're at a playground, maybe take him to a child and demonstrate how to play with other kids to show him that it's okay!!!!...keep doing this and he will eventually get the hang of it....It's okay!!!!...It's all apart of his age and stage!
