#17 Introversion is not shyness. You can be a shy extrovert or an
introvert who is not shy. "Don't think of introversion as something
that needs to be cured." What about the Western Extroversion Ideal?
omnipresent belief that the ideal self is gregarious, alpha and
comfortable in the spotlight” has pitfalls. What about extroverts
who claim to be introverts? Discover the power of Quiet personally,
professionally and in parenting.
Erase from your vocabulary, "Now, I want to be someone else" and
discover the power of quiet. Includes strategies for parents,
children, teachers, in the office, at home and personally. What
about introverted parenting? What if you have children with two
kinds of children (introvert, extrovert)?
How do you best parent them with the chill time or attention
needed? Clue: Don't overprotect them, honor who they are. As
Susan Cain says on
this podcast, "Introverted kids have a longer runway that they have
to travel before they take off and fly...you want to be with them
on that runway...and they need to know from you that you really
love who they are on that runway with them."
Get ready to spend your time the way you like and not the way you
think you're 'supposed to.' Stop denying your own reality of how
you want to spend your time and step into your True North of what
you'd like to be doing if you could.
