-Regularity: involves the habits of the child regarding his predictability of biological functions such as eating, sleeping;
-Sensory Threshold: the degree of sensibility manifested as a result to the exterior;
-Persistence:the way in which a child perceives the obstacles during a certain activity;
-Mood:the tendency of a child's reaction to be mostly positive or negative;
Helping Your Child Develop Self-Esteem
The development of a positive self-concept plays a major role for the success of children and teenagers, by helping them act independently, assume a responsibility, take pride in his accomplishments, attempt new tasks and challenges, handle properly his positive and negative emotions.
Parents have the duty to promote their child's self-esteem by encouraging him throw positive statements, being generous with praise, teaching him to practice making positive self-statements, avoiding criticism that takes the form of ridicule or shame, discussing about decision-making and to recognize when he has made a good decision, developing a positive approach to provide an appropriate structure.
A successful parent will teach his children to change his demands to preferences, encourage him to ask for what he want assertively, pointing out that there is no guarantee that he will get it, teach him to be responsible for any feeling he experience and, mainly,encourage him to develop hobbies and interests which give him pleasure and which he can pursue independently.
A good parent will never forget that a child brings hope and joy into this world and that he must be a model for his little one.
