How frequently do we hear a kid labeled as “soft” or “hard” or “humble till you get familiar with him/her”? When I researched a little bit on this topic, I found that all of these random labels relate to the aspects of personality, that is the characteristics that determine how our kid behaves in various circumstances.
Studies show that some of the temperament traits, either separately or in combination, influence how strongly our kid meets in locally, at school, with friends, and also at home.
The temperament impacts how tutors, friends, and family members relate to our kid, as well as how our kid relates to each of them.
It is the temperament that undoubtedly influences how our kids approach their school work and other tasks at home.
When our kid’s typical behavior doesn’t match with something that is anticipated, academic, family or social difficulties may occur.
For kids with a known learning disability (LD) or behavioral concerns, their particular temperament might help them see progress more efficiently, or it might increase their difficulties.
So, humble, enthusiastic, emotional, or passionate—what sort of kid do you have? And how to identify these characteristics in your kid?
By discovering your kid’s personality, you can correctly guess what he/she is all about.
It is the state of mind that changes in every different situation. By this, we can guess our child’s mood to be positive or negative.
Even though each kid displays a diversity of emotions, feelings, and responses, from happy to sad, loving to grouchy, every child is commonly inclined toward a positive or negative mood.
A more negative kid may find it difficult to get accepted by the society that includes friends, relatives, teachers, and family. Also, because of rapidly changing mood, it can be difficult for caregivers to recognize actual problems.
A kid who continually appears to be in a normal, happy mood more quickly fits in all situations.
It is defined as the sensory threshold of a child. In other words, it is how quickly changes in the climate fret our kid. By this, we can guess our kid to be highly sensitive or less sensitive.
Highly sensitive kids are acutely conscious of the environment, and they can get disrupted in many ways such as feeling weak in Summer or any particular season, clothes or inner wears may itch, the sound may distract, etc.
Kids with less sensitivity are more forbearing of environmental awareness, but they might be reluctant to react to alarm signs, such as smoke detectors, vehicle horns, school bells, etc.
The activity level of a child is the amount of physical energy seen during regular everyday activities. By this, we can guess our child to be active or dull.
At school or tuition, the more active kids struggle to adjust to a situation when they are abruptly asked to sit for extra hours. Their fidgeting and impatience may disturb the class, but their excess energy can be an advantage if directed in a positive direction.
However, kids with moderate to low activity levels favorably adjust to a structured class time, but they might be seen as lazy and unmotivated.
It is the initial or very first reaction of our kid to new situations. By this, we can guess whether they withdraw or accept newer challenges.
Braver kids approach different events with interest and openness, but they may leap too fast or respond impulsively.
On the other hand, kids that are more reluctant prefer to swing back and wait for a while before interacting with strangers, new people, or activity. It may prompt them to refrain out from new adventures. A more careful nature, however, does reduce the risk of getting in threatening situations.
It is the capacity to stick with a responsibility or task despite disturbances, delays, or failure. By this, we can guess our child’s persistence to be low or high.
Kids with high endurance are significantly correlated with educational success. A kid with extreme endurance, though, possibly a perfectionist!
The low persistence kids may come across troubles in school because of their tendency to get angry or irritated when disrupted or when a job turns complicated for them.
In this way, we can guess the personality type of our kid. As a parent, it is our job to figure out what characteristics our child has. Are those traits responsible for improving their performance or creating additional difficulties for them?
I have listed a few traits above, but there are many more. If you this list to be incomplete or have some more traits to include in it, then feel free to share your ideas through the comment box.
