Some of us are more extroverted – outgoing, social and talkative. Others are more introverted – introspective, quiet and possessing a strong ability to focus.
These differences run on a continuum, and each of us is wonderfully unique! Parents of introverted or “shy” children sometimes become unnecessarily concerned with their children’s behavior. For example, when your son is the only child at the park entertaining himself with nature while the other kids play tag. Or your daughter wants to sit and color while the other children are enjoying birthday party games as a group.
