Nancy Rose here, author of Raise the Child You’ve Got—Not the One You Want.
We’re going to be going over each of the Nine Traits of the CoreSelf. Now, if you’re not familiar with the concept of the traits of the CoreSelf, or of the CoreSelf, I encourage you to go back and look at Episode #3, which talks about what these Nine Traits represent. But in a nutshell, they represent the parts of a child that are inborn—the inborn temperament traits, that you as a parent cannot change…but you can influence.
Today, we’re looking at the second of the Nine Traits of the CoreSelf, and that is ADAPTABILITY.
ADAPTABILITY refers to how well your child handles changes in routines, plans and the environment.
Now, pay attention to the language that you use to describe your child’s adaptability. Is your LOW ADAPTABILITY child “stubborn” or “rigid,” or is he “consistent” and “cautious”? Is your HIGH ADAPTABILITY child “impulsive” or is he “flexible” and “open”?
Remember, words have tremendous power, and when we are describing our children, we need to pay attention to language we use.
