Why do most parents feel that their introverted child is somewhat abnormal?

    I totally concur with you! In American society, if one is an introvert, people deem you either retarded, slow, and/or in need of therapy. Thankfully in Asian societies, introversion is highly value. Yes, empty barrels DO make the most noise!

    Thank you for sharing that. Your response for parents is very well put. As parents we want to be aware of as much as possible with our child's personality and that he might have been exposed to. Parents can learn from or instruct him by experiences.

    it's important to be able to get along with other people, but there's a big diff between that & what many consider to be "having a social life." some in latter category simply go thru the motions because they're not comfortable with their own com

    Nothing is wrong with being an introvert. It is shame that extroversion is overglorified in this society. Introverts are demonized into believing that something is inherent wrong with their personalities and that they SHOULD change!
