Managing all the kids personality preferences over the summer holiday can seem impossible …. It doesn’t have to be hard though. Here are some hints to get you through.
Extraverted child – loves variety and action. Get them moving every day and mix it up, even including friends or neighbours as they love interaction and new experiences.
Introverted child – give them time to watch and wait a bit before forcing them into new stuff. They love to be good at what they do, so start them off in an activity with success and they will enjoy themselves. Alone time is important for them too.
Sensing child – love games with rules so keep things structured and understood. Realistic and practical activities will get a big tick of approval too.
Intuitive child – give your intuitive child the opportunity to be imaginative and flex their creative muscles. Often do things with bursts of energy and then run out of puff, so let their be down time too.
Thinking child – moves on from altercations quickly and doesn’t take things personally, they do like activities to be fair though. So if one child gets to do something exciting make sure your thinking child does too.
Feeling child – harmony and affection are paramount during the holidays so lots of love needed for this child. If they are feeling good, then summer activities go well. If they are feeling hard done by, or upset then they won’t.
Judging child – likes order, so no plans and sleeping in doing nothing all day will just wind this kid up. Give this child options and then let them achieve them. They love finishing what they started so don’t rush them onto the next thing too quick.
Perceiving child – loves flexibility, and is very curious about everything. Lots of questions and lots of stuff started but rarely followed through to the end. Can seem flighty, and distracted but are happy if they get free playtime every day.
