General Characteristics of Children In applying appropriate behaviors and parenting styles to deal with the characteristics of each child differently, parents must understand the general characteristics of children from an early age. Character or character is a trait that is genetically inherited from parents to children. However, along with the growth and social development of children, character or character can change slightly due to the influence of the external environment and relationships, although the basic character in each child will still last forever. This character can sometimes make it difficult for parents to understand what is done by children so parents are confused about how to educate children who still fit their personality. The ignorance of parents often leads to parenting styles that deal with children's behavior. It takes extensive insight and understanding from parents to be able to understand the characteristics of children so that the treatment and parenting applied by parents is appropriate and does not cause psychological trauma to children. Following are some of the common characteristics of early childhood: 1. Unique Unique is the basic and most distinctive characteristic of every human being from birth. Every child is born different and has its own uniqueness. This uniqueness is what makes humans have different characters from one another. These characters include innate nature, interests, background, capabilities and orientation. 2. Egocentric This egocentric nature is certainly possessed by every child from birth. This is evidenced by the attitude of children who tend to pay attention and understand anything around them from the point of view of their own interests. 3. Energetic and Active When children begin to grow up and experience the development of social life, children will enjoy doing various activities to explore their environment. Children seem to never feel tired, bored, and difficult to be asked to stop doing activities except when they sleep. 4. High Curiosity No small child is not fussy and has a strong curiosity. Generally, every child is always curious and wants to know this and that around him. Every second they always want to know new things they don't know. 5. Thirsty Adventure and Explorative High curiosity in children is usually accompanied by activities to explore or explore high. Adventurous souls in children will arise to better know everything around them. Children will be more active in doing many things like walking there yesterday, unpacking new toys, and scribbling walls. 6. Spontaneous The spontaneous attitude that exists in children is the original attitude and without being made or engineered by children. This can be seen when the child is talking, he will tend to blunt and express whatever is in their minds and hearts. 7. Happy to fantasize Children really like imaginative things. When children listen to fairy tales, they will have high imagination as if the fairy tale is really real and it is part of the characters in the story. Children are not only happy to listen to other people tell stories, but they also like to tell other people around them. 8. Easy Frustration Very high curiosity in children if not immediately followed or obtained by children will make children easy to feel frustrated. As a result, when children feel frustrated they will express it in a way angry, crying, and screaming irritably. 9. Lack of Consideration Children will tend to be spontaneous and not consider the things they do. Children tend not to think whether the things they do are dangerous or not. When they play with sharp objects for example, they will tend to directly play it without listening to the words or prohibitions of their parents. 10. Easily distracted Children have a tendency to be easily distracted or have short attention. For example, when a child is watching something boring, they will immediately avoid and continue to pay attention to other interesting and fun things. 11. High Learning Spirit When children have a desire that pleases and attracts their attention, usually they will continue to look for ways to understand what they want. If they are interested in being able to master one thing, they will keep repeating it repeatedly until they feel satisfied and able. 12. Interest in Socializing As children grow older, they will show an interest in socializing with their peers. They will work together or connect with friends in various ways.
