“Please come out of your room”
Have you uttered those wishful words when your introverted
teen disappears for hours?
Initially, I was that parent who begged my daughter to be with the family and not look like she lost her best friend. I would pray for a family movie night where she’d make it through the whole movie before retreating to her room. This did not stop at home, she would have limited involvement with others in school, and even family gatherings drained her. I thought I was a bad parent, and I felt so helpless when I noticed her discomfort in social settings. After some time, I did my research and experienced a lot of trial and error to get to understand where we were and where we needed go. After putting these necessary steps in place we were well on our way. Finally, we have arrived at the happy, connected place my teen and I are in today. I since have become an even bigger support system to her and she has blossomed before my eyes. My introverted teen remains a straight “A” student and now has a new zest for life.
