Do you have a child who hangs back at birthday parties? Who dreads being called on in class? Who hugs the sidelines, and who surprises you by seeming withdrawn or aloof in public but turns into a chatterbox at home?

The plight of the introverted child is to be often misunderstood. Parents, siblings, classmates, teachers, and -- most devastatingly -- the child himself feel that there's something wrong with him. With The Hidden Gifts of the Introverted Child, Dr. Marti Olsen Laney brings wisdom and science together to provide parents with an essential guide to raising a successful, well-adjusted innie. It covers the hardwired introvert temperament; introvert-extrovert family dynamics; Navigating school, sports, and social life; and especially, how to draw out your introvert's hidden gifts, which may include a love of learning, empathy, creativity, and flexibility -- virtues easily lost in the bluster of an extroverted world.
