Same parents, same parenting style—and kids that turn out really different. No surprise, says Helen Fowler Neville, who has spent decades researching the inborn traits we call temperament. Now, in an update of the classic title by her and parent educator Diane Clark Johnson, Neville reminds us:

  • Children are different from birth
  • An individual's temperament can explain much of his or her behavior
  • There are no "good" or "bad" temperament traits
  • Understanding your child's temperament—and your own—makes parenting easier
  • Different temperaments call for different handling and different environments
