Then learn how to manage behavior issues in ways that are tailored to your child’s temperament.
Once you know what to expect, the Preventive Ounce website explains how to manage the issues that are normal for your child. Knowing your toddler’s temperament helps you understand what triggers problem behaviors. Then you can prevent some meltdowns, calmly offer support during others, and gradually teach more mature ways to behave.
Learn to work with inborn traits… rather than struggle against them. Gradually, over the preschool years, you can help your child begin to manage his or her own temperament traits—a valuable lifetime skill.
History: The temperament traits discussed here were first described over in the 1940s by Dr. Stella Chess and Alexander Thomas. Since then, more than 40,000 parents have used the Preventive Ounce to make parenting easier and to avoid unnecessary blame and guilt.
Who should use this program? ALL parents. Every child has a temperament, and every temperament has different issues and risks.
