In light of my recent (see archives for March and April 2014) series on introverts, I’d like to add this article, which speculates that introverted children are being misdiagnosed as having special needs or even being mentally ill, when in reality there’s nothing wrong with them. Worse, parents are most often the ones pushing for medication for their children who don’t fit the prescribed mold.
How awful for these children! As one commenter put it:
I’m shy and bookish I’m not mentally ill I’m introvert living in a extroverts world.
