Temperament and School Performance

Temperamentti ja koulumenestys

Why would a smart and motivated child perform poorly at school?  Why do shy girls do better at school than shy boys? How is it that siblings born only few years apart might react to schooling in quite opposite ways?

Professor Liisa Keltikangas-Järvinen of Department of Psychology at Helsinki University explains how children’s different temperaments affect school performance and their socio-emotional development. The book is intended for teachers, parents and all who are interested in child development.
