Every child is different yet they can have the same kind of temperament, which I find interesting. I find it also interesting that about 40% of babies are considered to have an easy temperament! I personally would not think it would be that high.ReplyDelete
I have children of my own, so I found this post to be very interesting. I can remember when they were babies and how easy their temperaments were. However, as they got older, their personalities started to shine so I think their temperaments have changed a bit; which I believe should happen as a child gets older and is experiencing new things. Extra perk: having pictures of cute baby faces!ReplyDelete

I found this post very interesting since my nephew was recently born. Since he came into this world, I have been paying a lot of attention to how he acts and what he does. I have noticed he has an easy temperament.ReplyDelete
