Is your child an introvert

Do you worry that your child seems ‘different’ from other children around? Does your child like to spend time alone, daydreaming, reading and not socialising very much? Well – your child is probably an introvert– and you honestly need not worry! This world is made up of all sorts of people. Introverts and extroverts are two broad classifications of personality types that determine how our children conduct themselves and the choices they make in their lives. Unfortunately, being an extrovert is generally considered more socially desirable, as that is the prevalent stereotype. This is because being an introvert is not understood too well. Did you know that some of the most famous intellectuals, scientists, and artists are/were all introverts? Our Proparent blogger Swapna Nair helps us understand what being an introvert means, and how you can cope if your child is an introvert. • Did you know that one out of every 2 or 3 people is an introvert? Understanding the ‘Extrovert Ideal’– how society and educationists often favour extrovert personality traits and why that is a problem! Read on to find out… • What makes introverts more special – understanding the introvert mind and work ethic – introverts are more meticulous at work, creative thinkers, and possess deeper communication skills • Why it is important for us as parents to understand and respect that our children are not the same as us – we need to appreciate our introvert child’s world and that they relate to people differently • Coping with your introverted child –introducing new situations and people to them gradually, being sensitive and not pushing our child into uncomfortable social situations, 3 key skills to help your introverted child – and more…

very thoughtful and heartfelt message, we should respect one individuality, Introvert dosen't mean that a person is not smart, we should inculcate the good habits and skills in children so that they should cope up with the fast changing world.

Dear Neha, shouting does not help. It will hurt the child more. Instead try the soft tone. Soft but firm. Go down to his level , look him in the eye and speak softly. Softer tone gets work down more than noise. Offer options too. Throw the problem back to him and ask how do you think we could do this , or how would you like to do it? This way you also coach him to think of alternatives.

There is space for all under the sun- the optimist, pessimist, realist, dreamer, writer, thinker, extrovert and the introvert. It is important to be aware of ourselves and in turn of our children. Each child is unique. Enjoy their individuality. If we do not support our children who else will?
