Introduction

Child development is a complicated and multi-faceted process. It is a process whereby humans grow and change as they mature from infancy to adulthood. A child's personality is a work-in-progress and changes over time. All children go through different stages of development. 

A child's personality and character development can be heavily influenced by their upbringing, environment, family dynamics, culture, and socio-economic status. Many people think that Personality Development is a natural process, that it just happens. However, research has shown that parents have a significant influence on their children's personalities. 

One study found that people are more likely to share traits with their parents than with any other family member. They also found that the most crucial factor in Personality Development was family relationships.

This blog will examine some of the major stages in which children develop, starting with infancy and ending with adolescence. It will also give tips on how to develop a personality for kids.

Stages Of Development In Children

A child's personality is a complex process that develops as they grow. They are born with a unique set of characteristics that begins to form their personality. As the child grows, their personality changes and develops based on the stimuli and environment around them. The major stages in the development of a child's personality include infancy, toddlerhood, middle childhood, and adolescence.

1. Infancy

The first stage of the formation of a child's personality appears to be the 'self-centered' phase. During infancy (0 to 2 years), children are preoccupied with themselves and their own needs. They are egocentric and self-referential in their behavior. This is often characterized by aggressive behavior. This is thought to be either an attempt to get attention or an expression of displaced anger from needs that are not met. 

In addition, infants are very dependent on their parents and caretakers. They cry when they feel uncomfortable or insecure. They are also very curious and have a strong desire to explore new things.

2. Toddlerhood

Between ages 2-3, toddlers have a temperament that is either easy-going or demanding. Toddlers are more independent than infants. They enjoy exploring their environment and they are also able to distinguish themselves from adults. They can be shy around others if they do not know them well enough yet.

3. Early Childhood

From ages 3-6, children are more curious about their surroundings. There must be plenty of encouragement for them to explore and experiment with a variety of activities. Pre-schoolers can be confused about their identity. They often have to switch between two identities. The child at school has different rules than the child at home. This can lead to arguments with parents or caregivers about which set of rules should be followed.

4. Middle Childhood

During the ages 7-12, children's personalities take shape as they develop social skills. They should have a good understanding of rules and what it feels like when they do something wrong. Some children might be shy but should be encouraged to talk in class and try new things.

In infancy, children have a sense of themselves but do not yet have a sense of self-awareness. Infants can only see what is directly in front of them. They need help from others to learn about their surroundings. They are also in close contact with their mother. This makes them feel secure and provides an emotional attachment to her. This attachment to the mother continues on into toddlerhood. Here, it becomes crucial for the child to develop independence by separating from the mother physically. 

The child can still maintain an emotional attachment to the mother as well as other family members. 

In preschool years, children experience rapid growth in cognitive skills and sensory development. This increases their ability to explore their environment more independently. In school-age years, children become more aware of social norms such as telling jokes or playing games with other kids at recess time.

Personality Development For Kids

One of the many considerations that parents take into account when raising a child is how their personality will develop. What aspects of their personality are present at an early age? Which ones don't show up until they're older? Parents are always interested in how to develop the personality of children and what could be some personality development activities for kids.

Does Your Child Feel Good About Themself?

  • Developing personality in children is a hard thing to do. It's important to know what you're teaching them and how they feel about it. For example, if someone learns that they are loved by their parents, then that will make them feel extra good about themselves. Children need to feel good about themselves as it will help them be confident. 
  • Confidence and assertiveness are two important traits to be developed. Talk with children about how to deal with someone who is taking advantage of them or bullying them. This includes teaching children how to identify aggressive behavior in other people. You can read stories or watch movies together and ask your child to identify dominating behavior. 
  • You can also use role-playing exercises to let children practice what they would say in certain situations. Then talk about the importance of being assertive in both public and private settings. 
  • Teach them how they can stand up for themselves, including how to refuse requests politely without giving in to pressure. At the same time, it is important to not be rude. Encourage children to have a respectful conversation with others even when they disagree with what they say. They will slowly learn to process their feelings before responding aggressively by practicing that behavior with you. 
  • Help children understand that it's okay to feel frustrated or angry. However, they mustn’t express those emotions through aggressive behavior.
  • Make sure that your child has a lot of social interaction when he/she is young. This helps them learn how to get along with others. It also helps them develop empathy, compassion, and kindness. 
  • Reading stories is another great personality development activity for kids. When children are too young to read, the parents could read stories to them. 
  • Lastly, encouraging children when they try and fail at something greatly helps develop their self-esteem.

Pay Attention To Your Child’s Behavior

  • Children’s behavior is an essential part of personality. Will they grow up to be independent? Will they be disciplined and organized? Giving them responsibility for age-appropriate tasks in the home is something you can do. The tasks could be simple, but the child needs to complete the task at hand. 
  • For example, instead of cleaning after the children, instruct them to collect their toys and put them in the right places. In this case, it teaches discipline. Being able to look after oneself will also give older children a sense of self-esteem. 
  • It is also important for children to learn the importance of honesty and respect for other people's property. For younger children, you can set up stories or situations where dishonesty is punished and honesty is rewarded. Besides, punishments need not be harsh. You can teach your children about consequences by holding them accountable for their actions. This includes taking away privileges like TV, video games, computer time, etc. 
  • Most importantly, don’t forget to reward your child when they show honest behavior. Children learn to analyze situations at their own pace. Similarly, they will also learn about honesty more practically.

Help Your Child Develop The Way They Think

  • The way a child thinks can shape their personality. Are they able to think critically? Are they able to use creativity to solve problems? It is important to encourage independent and creative playtime for children to explore their own interests and express themselves through play. One great way of developing creativity in toddlers and young children is having them do art projects. They must be free to create their own design and must not be taught ‘a single way’ of doing things. 
  • Another way is to develop the child's senses of touch, taste, smell, and sight. This can be done by playing with textures or smelling objects in the house. It also helps develop their creativity when they use their sense of imagination to create a story using all five senses. However, one must never forget that children have short attention spans, so everything should be short and sweet! 
  • Giving children options to make decisions is a great way to teach them to think critically. The choices should not be limited between two things. Instead, they must be presented with a range of choices.

Final Thoughts

The personality of a child is something that can be developed through various activities. The first step that needs to be taken to develop the personality is to engage with children and another important aspect is recognizing their emotions. This is something that should be done at all ages and at all stages of development. The point of recognizing their emotions is that the children can learn how to identify them, as well as express them themselves.
