Siblings and Their Different Personalities
You are fearfully and wonderfully made…..
Isn’t that amazing. He knows the hair on our heads. Before we were formed in our mothers womb.
With each different person is a different personality.
I compare my boys often. They are 16 months apart in age. Couldn’t be further apart in personality.
They don’t dress the same.
They don’t like the same music.
They don’t like the same cars.
The younger two I don’t compare often because they are not the same gender.
What I find fascinating is that they were all raised basically the same.
The older two didn’t have much discipline in their younger years, but that changed when The Principal joined our family.
From there on out they were all four the same.
Each one responded differently to discipline as well.
The oldest we used a lot of tough love on. Still do.
The youngest if you looked at him wrong he would cry.
The girl child watched and learned and doesn’t cross that line. She doesn’t even put her toe on it. She does NOT get that from me.
Boy child #2, classic middle child, was sneaky. I am hearing stories now of his childhood antics.
Something else I find fascinating, as the older boys grow into adulthood, are the mannerisms from their father, whom they weren’t raised with.
It’s quite creepy at times. Especially since they are about the age he was when we met. That, I suppose is more genetics than personality.
Here is a little personality quiz on Focus on the Family
I believe He loves us the way we understand best. Like love languages.
Do you know your child’s love language? What they will respond to best when being disciplined? How do they feel loved by you?

Fun post! I LOVE reading about personality differences. My family used the Kiersey Temperament Sorter, and we found that very helpful. It’s linked to in this post: http://raisingfigureskaters.com/2013/01/16/how-to-help-each-of-your-children-feel-special/. My kids are grown now, but we all took the simple Love Languages test, too. Both tests are great. I love anything that helps us understand one another better.
I often think ‘why can’t we just get along’ and then remember how beautifully the world is created with each person having their own personality. Love this post! Thank you for linking up
