Kid's Colors!

Understanding your Kid's Colors
is the real magic of
Parenting By COLORS!

Step 1: Discover your Kid's Interaction Style...

To determine whether your child or teen is an Introvert or Extrovert, put aside any thoughts you have that he or she is shy or outgoing. Instead, think of how your child or teen interacts with the world around them, and where their focus lies. Then click on and read the descriptions found on the "Extrovert" or "Introvert" tabs. Consider which one best describes your child or teen most of the time. One or the other will be their natural interaction style.

  • Extrovert
  • Introvert

Extrovert Kids

Extroverted kids seem to focus more on things around them, on
other people, and what's going on outside their skin.
They are usually talkative, and as a parent you often know what they
are thinking or feeling because they will tell you.
They tend to ask lots of questions, or tell you long involved stories.
They don't usually like to be by themselves. They would rather be
with others and often "come alive" or get a "second wind"
from being with friends or family.

Introvert Kids

Introverted kids focus more on their own thoughts or feelings.
Even as a parent you might not know what they are thinking or feeling
unless you ask. When you do ask, they might tell you or they might
seem to ignore you at first. Teachers often describe them as quiet and
may say that they don't participate. As the parent, you know that they are listening but just not talking out loud... they're thinking!
They are re-energized by a little time alone, some time one-on-one with
you, or the chance to zone out on the TV or Playstation.

 

Step 2: Now determine your child's or teen's first Color...

First, read the BLUE, GREEN, ORANGE, & GOLD color boxes. Which color box seems to describe your child or teen the best? Some of you may find that this is a simple task, and can determine your child's color right away. Others of you may have a more difficult time with this process. Take your time, watch your child's behavior for a few days, and most of all try to have fun. The color that seems most like your child or teen is most likely their first color.

  • Blue
  • Green
  • Orange
  • Gold

Tender-Feeler Blue Kids

This child is very sensitive to the needs, feelings, and values of others.
They often worry about what other people think. This child can become
overwhelmed in emotionally charged situations or during conflict. They
are kind, caring, intuitive, and the self-appointed "fixers" of people problems.
They can seem overly dramatic, needy, or clingy when stressed. Their play
is very imaginative but usually people-focused. They want to be close
to you physically and emotionally. They like to help, they usually
obey and they can tell when you are upset.

Serious-Thinker Green Kids

This child is very logical in their thinking but may seem very illogical,
stubborn, and unreasonable to you. They rarely worry about what
others think unless they have a lot of respect for that person. They
can be impatient with their own deep feelings and the feelings of
others. They may dawdle, procrastinate, and daydream. They
need lots of information especially when you change plans on
them. They enjoy open-ended projects and get frustrated
with specific, "how-to" instructions.

Freedom-Fighter Orange Kids

This child needs flexibility from you but may seem very stubborn.
They need freedom to be and room to act. They are good at
handling change if it "feels" right or seems "logical" to them. If
that change takes them away from the fun, they don't like it at all
and will fight you on it. They are risk takers and love adventures.
They prefer hands-on learning with lots of action. This child is great
at keeping their options open. They are creative negotiators. They
get things done, but usually at the last minute.

Order-Maker Gold Kids

This child creates order from what they see as chaos, even if you don't
need their help to do it! They may be bossy, even bossing you
around occasionally. They need consistency and structure. They are comfortable with rules, things that stay the same, and having things settled
and controlled. They prefer to have a set schedule and don't handle change
very well. They have a strong sense of what is right or wrong, either
through their "feelings" or based on some sort of logical structure.
They don't really like surprises but are usually obedient.

 

Truly understanding your child's or teen's natural colors can change your life and theirs. But this will require you to learn more about each color's needs, stressors, and stress behaviors.
