Abstract: Guided by Bronfenbrenner’s 1979, 1989 Ecological Systems Model and Rose-Krasnor’s 1997 Social Competence Prism Model, this thesis examined the implications of self-reported shyness for early adolescent children in Vietnam. Specifically, the study examined the interactions among multiple ecological factors including self-reported shyness and social self-perceptions individual-level; perceived peer rejection and perceived parenting behaviors micro-environment level; as well as gender norms and social contexts macro-environment level. To accomplish these goals, data from self-report questionnaires of 415 middle-school children from urban and rural areas in Vietnam were analyzed with moderated regression analysis. Results showed that higher levels of self-reported shyness predicted higher levels of peer rejection, higher levels of harsh-punitive parenting, and more negative social self-perceptions for both boys and girls in both urban and rural contexts. Implications of shyness in contemporary Vietnamese society and suggestions for intervention and future research were presented.

Specifically, the study examined the interactions among multiple ecological factors including self-reported shyness and social self-perceptions (individual-level); perceived peer rejection and perceived parenting behaviors (micro-environment level); as well as gender norms and social contexts (macro-environment level).
To accomplish these goals, data from selfreport questionnaires of 415 middle-school children from urban and rural areas in Vietnam were analyzed with moderated regression analysis.
Results showed that higher levels of self-reported shyness predicted higher levels of peer rejection, higher levels of harsh-punitive parenting, and more negative social self-perceptions for both boys and girls in both urban and rural contexts.
Implications of shyness in contemporary Vietnamese society and suggestions for intervention and future research were presented. Key words: shyness, parenting, peer rejection, social self-perceptions, early adolescence iii Preface This thesis is an original work by Linh Nguyen.
