There are eight characteristics of Temperament that range on a continuum from Easy Going (40% of all children) to High Need/Spirited (15% of all children) with Slow-to-Warm in the middle (30% of all children).
Each week, we will explore the benefits and challenges of each one. Sometimes we need to see that not always is the grass greener on the other side. Of my five children, two are moderately spirited, one is easy-going, one is extremely spirited (my last one) and one is slow-to-warm. This is a eye-opening exercize that we do in classes and thought it would be great to get a wider range of opinions. Please contribute what you see/observe in your children. Thank you from Judy
