According to a research study, the tone an adult uses effects a child as much as the words that are spoken. When a child is exposed to emotional verbal expression in a situation of play, an angry tone can hard wire them to be more fearful later with that same play. Parents should be aware the what how they address children in circumstances can change that child's life long experience with those situations. Kids are not programmed with temperament as much as we think. A parent's behavior molds the child from very early on.
Current research shows that a persons temperament may not be as hard wired but may have more of an environmental factor.
How a parent reacts and talks to their child can have long lasting future impact on the child's temperament.
Being aware of what is said will allow a parent to adjust their conversation and how they treat their child.
"The results of a recent experimental study published in the March 2016 issue of Developmental Psychology found that not only what we say but how we say it may affect the development of emotional traits of a child starting at a very young age."
