NY Times: "Does Moving a Child Create Adult Baggage?"

"Introvert" and "extrovert" are used in a pretty facile way here. "Your extrovert will be fine" is shaky advice given that she is not simply an extrovert, but a complex person with tendencies on a spectrum between the two extremes.

Don't overestimate how resilient a kid is when you're interfering with the relationships that help her develop resiliency."
