Are you one of those parents who are very perplexed about their child’s behavior? Reminiscing your childhood, you realize that you never acted the way your daughter is behaving now. You were never hesitant to ask questions unlike your little daughter who is mostly shy and very reserved. She doesn’t show any energy for play like most kids do rather stands aside in the corner and watches other kids play. Did you also notice that your child talks to you in what you call fits and starts; one time she’s animatedly chatting with you, then suddenly she zones out and maintains silence; and you are bewildered at what is actually going on in her head? Do you also find that she keeps to herself most of the time, with her pre-school teacher complaining that the child is absent minded and does not participate in the class? You also wonder why your daughter doesn’t have many friends and just call her grandma and another weird kid from the neighborhood her only friends. Then we believe, you child is showing his or her first glimpses of being an introvert.

If you find yourself increasingly worried about your child showing early symptoms of becoming an introvert; relax it is not too bad. It is indeed true that children can undergo periods of severe anxiety and depression, like most adults. The best parents can do in such a situation is to monitor the symptoms that surface as the child grows up and become increasingly aware of how their child behaves.  Often the child is edging towards something more serious than early introversion. Make sure you control it before it gets too far.

Introverted children and babies are likely to move far way or avoid lights, clamor, movement and individuals. Extroverted children however are more attracted to toward such things. On the off chance that your child moves far from individuals, it doesn’t mean your child is bound to turn out unsociable, it just means he or she is edging towards being an introvert.

Indeed, even at an extremely tender young age, your introverted child needs to take individuals on his or her own terms. It is noticed that introvert infants and youngsters flag this quality by staring seriously at another new individual as though setting up a vivacious dead zone or contemplating the person in his or her head.

Have you ever come across an introverted child? Did you notice how they give you the death stare when you drew near them and are not very thrilled when you attempt to touch them? They either move away or helplessly stifle a sob. Yes, it’s true, introverts, be it a toddler, are very territorial about their bodies. So next tie you swoop down low on a child who clearly wants you away, imagine his or her horror when you grab them up in arms and kiss them.

On the other hand, an outgoing extrovert kid then again will start to make sound and movement keeping attracting someone else to them. They will make happy faces at you, and other inviting clear expressions as their eyebrows go up and their mouths screech, yell, giggle or “request”. Their hands spins, their heads sway and their bodies move toward you as quick as their moving feet can help them. An introvert is NOT the same thing as a shy individual. There is nothing peculiarly bad about being an introvert, as many people actually refer to it as something negative. An introvert can be defined as a person who energizes from being distant from everyone else and not animated with an excess of clamor and activity. A social butterfly or let’s call them an extrovert, then again, picks up energy from individuals and activity around them. Both the conditions and persons are entirely normal, simply distinctive and simply like we need every diverse disposition on the planet, we require a wide range of thoughtful people and outgoing people, as well.

If your child or toddler is an introvert, here are some guidelines that you should consider shadowing:


  • Do not baffle your child with a lot of things all at once:

Introduce your toddler introvert to just one individual, one toy, one action, even one food at once.


  • They are not very confident and can suffer easy humiliation

Introvert children will demand time to get ready and get used to new things their entire lives long. The first run through is quite often troublesome and particularly on the off chance that it includes something that must be done out in the open. Such people are very contemplative and can encounter a significant feeling of embarrassment on the off chance that they are unable to meet certain established expectations.


  • Relaxed countenance is deceiving!

Introverts frequently keep up a neutral countenance and disposition and maintain a relaxed reaction, when in actuality they are exceptionally extraordinary in their responses to things. This is to preserve their energy.


  • Steer clear of places that are noisy, bright or busy

Ideally your house isn’t this way (hard on your introvert child then) A major blunder in this class is arranging your introvert child’s birthday parties at huge open places that take into account outgoing kids with amusements, pressed tables, crowded paths, rivalry and disarray over “play tickets”, moving rides and grown-ups spruced up in creature or cartoon outfits who meddle into individual space! Outgoing children adore this. Your introvert child may feel that it’s depleting and overpowering.


  • Beware of the strong territorial issues!

At the earliest opportunity, please give a private room to your child. These introvert, thoughtful children can be depleted by a commonplace school day and need to energize their batteries. Kids effectively under anxiety (like the principal day of school) can likewise have solid regional responses to their external articles of clothing being expelled or lunch boxes taken away by an educator or another grown-up – or shoes evacuated at a play park. Kindly be touchy to these issues.


Introverted people are just 30% of the populace. Your child may require extraordinary backing at home to figure out how to adapt to a world set up by outsiders! The best approach to win is not to constrain them to end up an awful impersonation of a social butterfly. Inner-directedness is an authentic identity. Rather, help them to wind up more supporting thoughtful people.
