Understanding Your Baby's Personality
Understanding Your Baby's Personality
Just as you, every infant has unique personality traits that separate them from everyone else. Although the time of childhood often appears too early to predict what your child's behavioral pattern may be, childcare experts agree that certain behavioral traits can serve as clues of what you can expect as your infant grows.
Actions and reactions sum it all up. Certain acts from giggling to squirming and straining can be pointers of friendly and adventurous life. Inappeasable cries while trying to find your way through a crowd or at the buzz of a high pitch voice can give inkling on your baby's tolerance level towards elements that tend to distort his or her immediate peace.
Understanding your baby's personality markup can give you the needed head start in forging a healthy and happy parent-child relationship. This often affects how they relate with you as they grow into adulthood. Here are certain personality traits you should watch out for in trying to understand those special innate attributes of your little one.
Always Happy or Simply Neutral
The happy child is our Blue Bear. A human box of sunny smiley; literally, everything amuses this one. From the poking ray of the sun over its cheek to tickling on its light skin; a smile, giggle, and laughter are the rewards to almost every gesture.
Your neutral child is simply a different type. He is slow to react and spends more time on introspection than on trying to grant you a reactionary reward. This doesn't mean he's not in the know of your gestures or does not appreciate it. Talk of an analytical mind that does more of thinking than reacting!
One common trait with a happy or neutral child is their natural inclination towards self-contentment. Being attentive at the slightest of complaint or displeasure as parents can be the most productive gateway to building a healthy relationship because, in reality, this lot is seldom displeased.
Welcoming or Careful
Some babies blend like primary colors, and for this class of infant personality, almost everything goes. You can call them the Yellow Chickie. Others are cautious of what they take in or reject. A brief change of location, food type, or caregiver can make them nervous or receptive. Taking time to observe your baby's reaction to new things can help you understand his or her personality and how best it is to give your infant the best of childhood.
Gentle or Intense
Your baby's actions are often reactions, rarely to thoughts, and often to environmental factors. While some embrace a gentle approach, other babies give intense reactions to certain things. Taking time out to observe how your baby is likely to react to things can help with the choice of processes you as a parent allow. You can deal with upsetting conditions before they reach the intense child, or declassify them as upsetting for that infant with a gentle approach.
Erratic or Open
While some babies are easy to study, others are not, and that's because of their erratic nature that makes predictability hard. For infants with open routine, preparing for the usual can help in forging a bond of reliance that strengthens parent-child relationships.
Being often prepared for the unknown can also better help you react to babies that are hard to predict. Through a lot of patience, you can ease that erratic child into a suiting pattern of behavior to include a time of sleep, play, and feeding to safeguard your sanity and ease your stress. Creating a roster of daily routine activity can actively streamline the child into a pattern, although this could take some time, partial, even if not complete behavioral changes are possible.
Always cheerful or not, calm or explorative; every baby has a unique personality that separates them from others, unsurprisingly, these differences occur even in babies of the same parentage. Understanding your baby's personality is often the key to a more enjoyable upbringing and the fostering of binding relationships they are likely to carry into adulthood.
