Mighty Mob Activity Pack

Are you worried your kid is too shy?

That they’re missing out on fun because they’re too shy to join in? 

That they’re missing out on opportunities because they’re too shy to speak up?

A quick Google on the word ‘shyness’ reveals a pretty miserable outlook on their future career and mental health, plus the occasional implication that it’s all down to parenting (not at all helpful).

Is there a cure? How do we fix it?

Are they doomed to a life of unhappiness and frustration?

OK – let’s take a breath and all calm down a bit.

The existing research on shyness painted a pretty bleak picture, so I commissioned my own survey to see if being shy really did negatively impact on how much someone enjoyed their life.

This is what 68,789 responses revealed:

  • Outgoing people are 45% more likely than shy people to work in a higher managerial role
  • Outgoing people are more than twice as likely than shy people to have a household income of over £100K
  • Only 4.9% of shy people are very happy
  • Shy people are half as likely to be very happy than outgoing people
  • Shy people are more than twice as likely than outgoing people to be very unhappy.

Let me summarise those numbers…

Shyness reduces our chance of a happy life.

Do we need to eradicate shyness to improve our quality of life? NO!

Shyness is a part of our personality. When we learn to embrace it, and work with it (instead of constantly trying to hide or fight it) it’s possible to live a happy, fulfilling life.

Because of my work with shy adults, and as an official ambassador for Girlguiding, I’m often asked about how to best support shy kids.

And that’s why I’ve created The Mighty Mob Activity Pack for shy kids.

The Mighty Mob Activity Pack is for kids who identify as shy, and who want to feel braver, more able to speak up, more able to join in, and more comfortable being themselves.

Here’s how it works…

Every week you’ll download a new Mighty Mission. These are tasks designed to stretch the courage of our Mobsters, and are things that can be incorporated into everyday life.

With every completed mission, your kid will become a little braver, start taking steps out of the shadows, towards a bigger life. 

These kid-friendly missions will challenge them to work with their shyness.

To speak up while honoring that shy part of themselves.

To take tiny brave steps to join in, while acknowledging that it takes courage to do so.

I’m here to help your kid work with their shyness, not overcome, eradicate or cure it.

To help them take control of their shyness so they are not controlled by it.

Let’s turn that shyness comfort blanket into a cape.

“We are loving the Mighty Mob! One child, who was a selective mute is now, after 6 years, finally talking in school! It’s a massive breakthrough but I know that coming to the club has helped with this as it gives her a safe space and a little more spring in her step each week.”

“The Mighty Mob has been a fantastic way to help boost the confidence of some of the shyer children in my class. As a Year 6 teacher, I wanted a way to help the children find their voice and inner quiet confidence before they moved to secondary school. After only a few weeks of sessions, I noticed a huge difference in their confidence to use their voice when they wanted to. As we worked through the sessions, they developed a sense of knowing that shyness is not a weakness, but a gift that gives them qualities that others may not have. One of the children summed this up perfectly; “Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

What age range is the Mighty Mob designed for?

The Mighty Mob is designed for kids aged 7-12. However, if your child is aged 5 or 6, and you’re available to assist your child, the activities will be extremely beneficial.

How many activities are there?

There are 32 weeks of Mighty Missions. We recommend doing one activity per week. 

Can my kid do the activities on their own?

We suggest that each Mighty Mobster has a Mighty Mate to support them with their missions – whether that’s a friend, a parent, a guardian, or a teacher.

I'm interested in the Mighty Mob for my school....

We offer an annual school license for schools. Please email nadia@shyandmighty.com to discuss.
