When an extroverted parent has an introverted child, they may become worried. But introversion isn't a sign of depression or anxiety. In fact, a lot of very successful people self-define as introverts. Don't expect your child to get over introversion, as it is grounded in biology.
Try to slowly introduce them to new situations and people, and understand that they might find socializing to be draining. Furthermore, don't worry if the child only has a few friends. Ultimately, celebrate your child's temperament, as they may have a lot going for them.

Many introverted children, however, are not depressed or anxious at all. They behave in the way they do because of their innate temperament.
Introverts are hardly a minority. Numbers vary based on a study, but introverts make up 30-50 percent of the U.S. population.
