Parents of a teen whom they have identified as introverted, quiet and/or sensitive often lose confidence in their parenting skills. These teens don’t behave like ‘typical teenagers’  — instead of being ‘out too often’ or experimenting with alcohol or drugs, they are often emotional, struggle making friends and spend too much time in their bedrooms. Influenced by society’s negative view of this behavior, concerned parents turn to common parenting advice which doesn’t work.

Parents of these teens have found what used to work, no longer does. They often feel as if they are walking on eggshells around their child to ensure they remain calm or don’t disappear into their bedroom.

This monthly blog addresses the issues many parents of introverted, quiet and/or sensitive teens encounter and provides solutions and hope.
