This is quite normal. According to statistics, only 30-50% of the population of our planet is introverted. There are many successful people among them, including Bill Gates, Joanne Rowling, Albert Einstein and others.
The child will remain an introvert. American psychologists assure that both introversion and extroversion are genetically conditioned, and therefore it is impossible to switch from one to the other.
The child cannot quickly get used to new people and situations. It is not easy for such children to adapt immediately in a new environment. As a rule, an introverted child in such a situation does not feel very well and is unsure. To make it easier for the child to adapt, it is better to stay with him or her and leave them alone only when he or she can get used to and feel more confident.
The child may have special interests. An excellent option would be a music or art school.
Tell the teacher in advance that the child is an introvert. Sometimes teachers think that children are silent in class because they are not interested. Such a child can listen attentively and talk to himself or herself.
Help your child to express himself or herself as best as possible. To get your child motivated to talk, listen carefully and ask him or her questions. Every introvert has their own inner life and it is important for them to have someone to help them express themselves.
The child may have several friends and this is quite normal. It is important for an introvert to build deep relationships, not to make many friends.

An introverted child is mom and dad's favorite treasure. It is important not just to learn to accept your child for who they are, but also to appreciate their specialness.
