Strategies to Honor Your Child’s Temperament

Once you understand your child’s temperament, develop strategies that honor both your child’s temperament and her need to adapt to the surrounding environment.

• Help your child express her feelings, desires, and preferences.

• Anticipate issues before they occur, including situations that will overly frustrate or challenge her. Some frustration is important for growth, but too much frustration can be problematic.

• Select situations or activities that fit your child’s temperament so she will be able to accomplish her goals and feel successful.

• Acknowledge and understand temperament mismatches to avoid recurring battles.

• Identify your child’s strengths to support her success with tasks and relationships.

• Give your child’s natural disposition room to flourish.

• Have realistic expectations of your child and yourself.

All temperament qualities work towards your child’s advantage, if they are sensitively managed.
