All children are unique

If you have more than one child in your family, you will already know that siblings can be as different as chalk and cheese.

They have different personalities, likes, habits and abilities.

Sometimes, parents wonder why what works with one child may not work with the next one.

Some children are naturally compliant – they are easy to manage. Some children are naturally strong willed – they are more challenging! Sometimes the strong willed child takes up more energy and it can sometimes seem like this child is ruling the roost at home.

If this happens, the compliant child’s needs may be overlooked.

Understanding the unique personality and needs of every child in our family helps us to respond appropriately to them – the same can be said of children in the class at school.
