Extroverted child – oh I have 2 of these! A few weeks back we talked about caring for an introverted child, now let’s talk about the polar opposite – the EXTROVERT!
I started putting play these tips and it’s so cool to see my extroverts thrive with this advice. I hope it works as well in your family as it has for ours.
Our 2 extroverted children define what an extrovert child is. They thrive when in a group setting, they talk to anyone and everyone (they’ve never met a stranger!) and most definitely love attention.
The definition of an extrovert according to Google:
Extrovert: An outgoing, overtly expressive person
Traits of an Extrovert
