Temperament: What Makes Your Child Tick

Feb 16, 2016

Understanding your child's temperament can help you better understand why he acts the way he does. From Magic of Everyday Moments — Series 1.

Temperament shapes the way we experience the world and interact with others. It is the collection of characteristics - emotional intensity, sensory reactivity, activity level, adaptability, persistence - that makes each of us unique.

Temperament is biologically based, part of the unique wiring of each individual’s nervous system. Your child did not choose his or temperament.
