Inappropriate Behavior?

Some children are always happy-go-lucky, while others are grumpy. Some are hesitant in new situations while others run with open arms. Some kids complain when the sun is too bright or a clothing tag is touching their neck, while others hardly let you know when they are hurt. Challenging? Yes! But, this does not mean their behavior is inappropriate.

In your daily discipline, it helps to understand something about each child's individual style. Temperament is an inborn, distinct style of responding. Wise parents and childcare providers consider each child's temperament when disciplining. It just might make a difference in your daily discipline too.

I encourage you to read my article
