SpiritualDirection: Spiritual steps for your choleric child

Hippocrates noted four patterns of behavior: choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic and melancholic. Author, mother and blogger Connie Rossini has created a dynamic new set of spiritual growth plans for her children. She shares her strategies in the first book of the series: A Spiritual Growth Plan for Your Choleric Child. Here we learn about the four temperaments and their differences. Cholerics react quickly and hang onto their impressions. Sanguines also react quickly, but their feelings fade. Phlegmatics react mildly with fading impressions. Melancholics react slowly, but hang onto their impressions.

Her wisdom and knowledge supports parents familiar with the temperaments and introduces the differences to parents beginning to learn about these patterns of behavior. Before giving the steps for spiritual change, she explains that, although each temperament needs a slightly different motivational technique, they share some basic similarities (in fact, she learned to take into account her phlegmatic-melancholic temperament in dealing with her choleric child).
