Balancing Social Personalities and Reclusive Personalities
Dean and I do believe in a social balance for each child. While some socialize easily others find social interaction very difficult. Some children will say that they do not need social interaction, but we believe this to be untrue. Social skills are important in both family and work environments, as well as for personal development. Adam needed a relationship with Eve apart from God. Jacob longed to reunite with Esau after years of separation. We were created to share our lives and none of us find success without interacting with others. Therefore, we encourage parents to help less social children to build friendships rather than allowing them to spend hours on end alone.
