In this episode, Olympic Gold Medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White share how introversion gave them an edge in the competitive world of figure skating. Host Susan Cain explains how mastering a sport—or any other beloved pursuit, from robotics to the performing arts—is a great way to build a child's self esteem. She'll show you how to spot common traps for quiet kids, such as fear of failure and perfectionism, and give you concrete tips on how to choose the right activity—and the right coach—to build your budding athlete's confidence.
