ABSTRACT
Children come with inborn personality traits that is called temperament. How a child responds emotionally to objects, events and people is a reflection of his individual temperament. As one tunes into one's child's temperament, one is far more likely to be successful in helping him adjust to situations and persons in ways that promote his social ease and competence. The article provides suggestions for parents to learn about their child's temperament style. First, one needs to become a careful "noticer" of one's baby. To determine one's child's temperament, the parents should observe him on his activity level, mood and threshold for distress.
