In Defense of Introverted Children

As the mother of an introverted child, I felt unnerved by the reactions of adults around me to my daughter’s quietness.

“After several visits with the child psychologist, I discovered that my daughter’s introversion caused her no distress, but it drove the adults around her crazy. By shining a light on the adults in her orbit, I was able to see their—and my—limitations, and was finally able to put the issue into perspective.”
