Because, as a parent, you cannot give what you do not have, no one can. This is why in this post, we want to focus on a particular temperament, precisely “phlegmatics” and how they can improve their child training and parenting skills.

The typical phlegmatic parent is that very calm, quiet, gentle, gracious and organized individual who’s very calm and unruffled even in very critical and most challenging situations. He’s a very caring and loving individual, who’s very committed to his family more than anything else, except when work or career pressures begins to find his way into his life. He’s a very good manager of pressure, handling it with calm and efficiency, eventhough he fears being under one.

Female phlegmatics are very dutiful and domestically industrious persons. She plays her domestic and marital roles with organization and calmness. She’s very passionate about her kids, and cares about their well-being, and her male phlegmatic counterpart is an efficiently organized individual who always loves to keep his family together and in warm peace. Though phlegmatic parents generally shares similar characteristics, whether male or female. Phlegmatics parents have got very good morals and qualities of respect, humility, gentleness, self- discipline and organization that they love to see replicated in their kids, but lacks the courage and determination to pass it on to them. And except the kids are typical phlegmatics as they are or are predominantly of the phlegmatic temperament, they could become very unruly and uncontrollable.

These attitudes no doubt also affects the upbringing and training of their kids. A phlegmatic father or mother could be upset with the misdemeanor of their kids and have a resolve to discipline them, but will sooner backtrack from that decision just seeing the tears of the kid or to avoid facing any resistance from them or being in an unpleasant, discomforting situations. This makes their kids grow up to become very disrespectful and unruly to them, since they lack the will, courage and determination to wield the big stick or use other means to instill discipline in them when necessary.
