Children’s Temperament Traits Affect Their Motor Skills
[Source: Science Daily]
A recent study among 3- to 7-year-old children showed that children’s motor skills benefitted if a child was older and participated in organized sports. Additionally, the study provided information about the importance of temperament traits for motor skills. More specifically, traits such as activity and attention span persistence were found to be positively associated with motor skills. This was a rather novel result, as the association between motor skills and temperament during early childhood is not yet widely understood.
