Children & Their Temperments, Marieke AnschutzFloris Books
Drawing on an ancient tradition, Rudolf Steiner referred to four fundamental 'types' or 'temperaments' in the human personality, each of which, he said, has different personal needs and ways of relating socially. From her experience of working with children of all ages, Marieke Anschutz provides a guide to children's different temperaments and their role in child character, health and personality development. The book includes illustrations from home and school, in the context of the Steiner-Waldorf classroom. The author discusses how these ideas may be used to manage, and relate to, groups and individuals.
