Tips for Parenting The Extraverted Child

Parenting Based On Personality Type
The Extravert Child:

  • May need something active after sitting all day at school. Don’t make them do homework right after school. Set homework time for later. But Do set it.
  • May come home chatty, after gathering energy from interacting with their environment. Allow time for that. Set a time limit
  • Don’t like being interrupted because they are forming ideas as they speak. Wait to ask clarifying questions when they pause.
  • Can be uncomfortable with silence.  Educate them on the importance of listening to others.
  • Often times stimulate the conversation by asking more questions or adding more comments.  Educate them that some people need time to think about their answers & to allow for that.
  • Easily distracted. Don’t hold conversations with others within earshot of the E child when they are needing to concentrate.
  • More willing to take the lead; because they are more comfortable in allowing ideas to unfold.
