Quiet Kids: Help Your Introverted Child Succeed in an Extroverted World by Christine Fonseca is a four part book which address the differences between introverted and extroverted kids, introverted kids at home, at school and at play.
Understanding your temperament is crucial in knowing how you function and what are your stimuli. Once you know your own temperament you will be able to diagnose the temperament of the members of your family and create an environment which is able to accommodate both introverts and extroverts if you happen to have a mixture in your home.
To be effective in parenting you need to first know your child and his temperament and how the household environment impacts the behavioral reaction of children.
There are worksheets within each chapter for the reader or the child to fill in to get a better assessment of the child’s character traits. Tip sheets with short summaries of each section make it easy for one to reflect on the main points of each chapter.
These notes are in the form of pointers to parents and teachers to make the introverted child more comfortable in their setting and also teach them the relevant skills to survive in society.
It was interesting to learn that more introverts were perfectionist and are very afraid of failure. They would rather give up then suffer the thought that they will fail. They get stressed up very easily and can get very emotional. Having an introvert child myself I now understand better why he acts up at time and behaves in certain ways. I will be putting the tips learned in this book to teach him how to cope with the obstacles that he is facing better.
