Your Child's Temperament

"Many, but not all, children tend to fall into one of three broad and somewhat loosely defined categories: easy, slow to warm up or shy, or difficult or chal­lenging. These labels are useful shorthand, but none offers a complete pic­ture of a child. Many parents find it more useful to think about their child in terms of the nine temperament traits."

I'm lucky enough to have one difficult and one easy — at least for now. I have a feeling she's going to be difficult when she gets older. ;)
