Summary
Easygoing at age seven doesn't always translate into easygoing at 27 - in the course of two decades, a laid-back kid may change into an aggressive or attention-starved adult. But temperament does offer a window into the development of coping skills. Focusing on 11 children as they cross the 7-year age threshold, this program shows how each subject's inherent temperament shapes his or her ability to deal with the pressures of the schoolyard, family breakdowns, and other hurdles. How will perfectionist Haleema cope when a mischievous accomplice destroys her artwork? Is the rubber band of resilience being stretched too far for carefree Daniel, as conflict between his parents threatens the stability of his world? How is it that temperamental Jara'na seems to have the command of the group, and why is Declan able to reign in his difficult disposition at school, but not at home?
