Introverted children are often misunderstood, even by their parents, who worry about them. Parents fret that they are unhappy and maladjusted. But the truth is quite different: Introverted children are creative problem solvers. Introverted children love to learn. They take time to stop and smell the roses, and they are dependable, persistent, and flexible. How can parents help their introverted children discover and cultivate these wonderful gifts? Written by Dr. Marti Olsen Laney, The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child, fully explains introversion and tells just what parents need to do to help their child become the person he or she is meant to be—and succeed in an extroverted world. This book shows parents how to foster a climate that allows introverted kids to discover their inner strengths and find success at school, sports, parties, and other group activities.

"Simply written yet embedded with gems, this book will help parents understand introverts and facilitate their full development. Now we need one for extroverts."
