Being an introverted child is difficult, especially in an ever-increasingly noisy world. Often viewed as aloof, unmotivated or conceited, introverted children are deeply misunderstood by parents, educators and even their peers. That's where Quiet Kids: Help Your Introverted Child Succeed in an Extroverted World comes in. Designed to provide parents with a blueprint for not only understanding the nature of introversion, Quiet Kids provides specific strategies to teach their children how to thrive in a world that may not understand them. Presented in an easy-to-read, conversational style, the book uses real-world examples and stories from introverts and parents to show parents and educators how to help children develop resiliency and enhance the positive qualities of being an introvert. With specific strategies to address academic performance, bullying, and resiliency, Quiet Kids is a must read for anyone wishing to enhance the lives of introverted children.

Reviews

"Extremely useful for educators and parents, this thoughtful text emphasizes the many gifts of quiet kids." - Publishers Weekly "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." - From Dominique's Desk "This book handles the balance of celebrating what makes introverts who they are, while encouraging strategies for success with those who don't understand introverts. " - Motherhood Moment "Presented in an easy-to-read, conversational style, ["Quiet Kids"] uses real-world examples and stories from introverts to show how to help children develop resiliency and enhance the positive qualities of being an introvert. " - Counseling Today "Fonseca offers tactics to instruct children on how to flourish in an environment that may not comprehend them, and shows parents and teachers how to help kids acquire resiliency" - The Fresno Bee "altimore's Child asked me to review Christine Fonseca's new book, ""Quiet Kids"," and after reading just a few pages, I already considered it a privilege to do so. I hope this remarkably informative book will encourage parents, teachers, and leaders in business to end their lopsided preference for extroverts and give the introverts among us the acceptance and respect that every person has a right to expect." - Baltimore's Child "The author has researched her subject well, and draws on some of the voices of her interviewees in the book. The question and answer format that runs throughout the book makes it a very accessible read, while the Tips sections, particularly those for teachers, are invaluable. Above all, the advice is eminently sensible while the author asks for understanding and the provision of space and calm for introverted children, she also recognises that "learning a few survival social skills can help introverts overcome the misperceptions." The book provides fascinating insights and is an empowering read for those of us who have learned extroversion the hard way. If you have an introverted child, then read this book." - Dr. Helen Wright"
