Differences and Listening

As any parent of more than one child knows, no two children are alike. So while the rules of the house remain constant, the approach of the parent to upholding those rules will vary from child to child.

Children can be rebellious, strong willed, docile, timid, fearless, curious, apathetic and a whole host of other adjectives can apply.  Once you have figured out your child’s temperament, it’s up to you to design the most effective way of directing that child’s energies.

With a strong-willed child, you might offer a challenge. A timid child will perhaps respond better to a solicitation of help.

But with all children, listening to their hearts in what they say and do, acknowledging their personalities, and respecting their differences will yield a more satisfactory outcome.

Let us know in the comments what parenting techniques have worked well for you.
