Loving Ways to Manage Children with Different Personalities

Posted on 07-15-2015

When the first adorable baby comes along it’s easy to know when to offer food, laughter, and rest. You quickly learn to recognize signs that your baby is tired, wants to be held, or doesn’t like an environment. As new parents, you quickly change the situation, and patiently watch as your little one becomes satisfied.

When a second child is born, parents are surprised when the personalities are totally different. One baby sleeps quietly for long hours, another child takes quick naps and requires more care for bedtime. One loves every type of food provided, while parents struggle to find a dish that another child will eat. As they grow up, parents learn that one does most of the talking while another is more shy and quiet. The list of differences in each child’s personality can be inexhaustible and a major issue for loving parents to manage.

If you have more than one child, you have likely experienced this challenge. The differences in your children are a sign of their growing independence that should be celebrated and encouraged. Your children were born to be different as they explore and discover their own likes, dislikes, gifts, preferences, and talents. You will begin to notice the difference in your infant and even more in your toddler, and preschool child. As a parent, seek to manage the differences in a way that encourages growth and personal development in a loving and accepting manner. Try not to compare your children. Instead compliment each child for her special gifts and talents. Instruct your children to avoid critical remarks when a child is challenged in an area of giftedness for another child. Remember to be patient as your children learn about themselves and the world around them.

Parents always want the best for their children. That means helping them to understand their areas of giftedness and teaching them to respect the differences in siblings and friends. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Charlotte, children are special with their differences, likes, and dislikes. Our curriculum takes into account every aspect of your child’s development and each stage of growth from infant, to toddler, and preschool, and even our Before and After School program. For more beneficial solutions to manage your children’s different personalities, talk to our Kids ‘R’ Kids of Charlotte teachers and staff. We love children and take the time to celebrate all of their differences. We are so much more than a childcare or daycare center. Visit us today!
