What is Temperament?

Temperament is the "personality" your child was born with. Research shows that "at risk" children have the following temperamental qualities:

Aloof : They have difficulty forming and enjoying loving relationships.

Impulsive: They have defective impulse control.

Fearless: They lack of fear. This lack of fear changes the way they respond to punishment.

Outgoing: They have a strong desire to explore the social and physical environment.

Dominant: They have a strong desire to be at the top of the pecking order.

Anger-Prone: They have a “hair-trigger” for anger.
