The basic nature of your child is already at its formative stage. There are mainly two kinds of people -- introvert and extrovert. Usually extroverts win hearts. They are very easy-going, expressive and funny. Everybody wants to be around them and have fun. Introverts are very shy kinds and are unable to make friends easily. They take a lot of time in adjusting with things.
What you need to do
Extroverts have an upper hand in getting things in the long run. So, it is better to start building your kid’s nature from early childhood. Extrovert natures will help them to advance well in life. Shyness prevents many chances to grow in life.
Give them a large friend circle to express themselves. This will help them to interact with new people. Do not overshadow them; let them learn from their own real life experiences and mistakes. Parents tend to be over protective towards their kids, this in turn makes them more dependent.
