Interested in adding tools to your toolbox to help handle these personality types? Contact me regarding “Parenting on the Same Page” Parent series.
There are four basic personality types of children when it comes to handling frustration:
1. Trier – Child patiently persists
2. Crier – Child gets frustrated and cries or whines for help
3. Flyer – Child “flies off the handle” with rage
4. Sigher – Child shrugs shoulders, sighs and moves to another activity
Do you have a Trier, a Crier, a Flyer or Sigher?
Are you sensitive to the individual needs of your child?
Are you aware of your child as an individual?
Do you respect your child’s personality, even a Crier or Flyer?
Just some food for thought!
