Understanding your child’s temperament will help
You might also start blaming yourself for your child’s behaviour, rather than understanding it is simply how they are. Create a positive relationship with your child. Your own temperament will also influence your parenting. The better the fit between your child’s temperament and your parenting style, the better the results will be.
You will find more than just games in GREAT GAMES
