Temperament describes the way a child approaches and reacts to the world. It is a part of their unique personality.

Temperament influences a child’s behaviour and the way they interact with others. While temperament does not clearly define or predict behavior, understanding a child’s temperament can help us understand how young children react and relate to the world around them.

Information about temperament can also guide parents and caregivers to identify children’s strengths and the supports they need to succeed in their relationships and environments.
