How loudly or quietly does your child express themselves? Perhaps they are vibrantly excited for a new scooter they have opened and immediately start popping wheelies, or they quietly open a set of blocks, say thank you, and move to the corner to play with their new gift. As they are adjusting to a two-week break schedule, do they holler about how tired they are, or quietly fall asleep on the couch before midnight hits on New Year’s eve? How a child expresses themselves reflects their intensity. In this throwback episode called “Cool, Calm, Collected,” hear Lori and Mackenzie discuss this temperament trait.Send us an email: parenting@iastate.edu.Find us on Facebook or Twitter: @scienceofparent.This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
