Discipline Strategies that 'Fit' Each Child

Why are some children always boisterous while others are quiet? Why are some kids eager and ready to participate in activities while others have to be cajoled into trying? Why do some kids scream bloody murder with the mere prick of a needle – the same kids who are impossible to dress because the tags in the back of a shirt warrant it unbearable?

Each of us is born with our preferred style of interacting with the world around us. But genes are not destiny. Understanding each child's style and working with it is essential for effective discipline. By discovering who has come to be with you, you can select the most effective discipline tools and teach each child the skills he/she needs to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses.
