Your Child's Temperament: Intense

Find out ways to control your child's temper.


All children have a tantrum at some point, how they handle their behavior or how intense the situation gets starts with how you, the guardian, handle the situation.  Understand your child's behavior if they relate to any of the following behaviors. Use these tips to help cool down your child when their temper raises:


-Help your child learn to calm down on his or her own.

-Watch for cues that your child is getting too wound up.

-Teach your child positive places to use his or her intensity such as for sports or outdoor activities

-Figure out what calms your child. Is it physical activity or quiet time?

-Use a lot of praising because intense children have intensely low times, too.  

-Get excited with your child when it's appropriate.
