How would you describe your child's personality & what have you done to shape it?

My son Homero is crazy and energetic but shy when he meets new people. He can be very helpful, and is very loving. I love loving on him, I praise him for every good thing. He can be very stubborn sometimes and has his father's temper, which is very scary. When he gets like that, I try to talk to him instead of screaming at him. I have been trying to teach him to be open and share his feelings when he has them so that he wont get frustrated.

Well, U have seen Caelan in action...she LOVES stimulation, diversified activities, socialization, etc., and she's pretty much the same way @ home. Basically, she's incredibly willful and determined (like Mommy), wants to do things HER way (Mommy), yet has a wonderful amount of insight, sensitivity, empathy, and articulation for a 3-yr-old. I believe that we've shaped her mostly by being consistent, confident in our co-parenting, building her self-confidence, and exhibiting unconditional love. We also do the best we can in exhibiting appropriate behavior and explaining things to her as to why we discipline her (time-outs) when she needs to be. We know what's best for HER, and we let that be our guide.
