Wish there was a manual for this whole parenting thing? Well there just might be. Learning about child personality types can help you hack your way through parenting and be a better mom.

Today’s guest on the MomUp Show, Sabrina Ivonne, loves helping parents learn more about child personality types and how they can help parents better understand their children.

Energy profiling is one of the first things Sabrina asks all moms about. It’s a system by Carol Tuttle based on Ayurvedic medicine. Here’s a quick rundown of the system, so you can deal with those childhood moods a little better.

There are four energy types simple numbered 1-4. While we all have all four energies within us, we are primarily one of the four energies. Sabrina helps parents figure out their children’s type so they can better understand and parent their children. Sabrina recommends learning your own type first and then your children’s.

A brief description of each type:

Type 1:

The social butterfly who can talk to anyone. Bubbly, fun, exuberant, and flutters from place to place rapidly.

Type 2:

Emotional, soft, and sensitive this person is a much more slow-moving and comfort-seeking person.

Type 3:

Determined, go-getter, and natural-born leaders this type won’t stop until they reach the top.

Type 4:

Bold, striking, perfectionist, and lovers of balance. They are constantly editing and perfecting everything as they are very meticulous.

Listen in while we try to type me and my kids! Plus, lots of chat about parenting for YOUR child, astrology, and energy.

Sabrina Ivonne is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Holistic Behavior Specialist, triple fire sign, serial entrepreneur, M.O.M, and the creator of the Wildly Grounded in Self-Love Retreat.

She guides, coaches, and supports mothers of children with big responses to life’s “normal” stuff including children diagnosed with ASD and ADHD. She teaches them to affect change in your child’s behavior through loving, compassionate means. She also guides the entire family to work together for everyone’s mutual benefit. She often works with mothers who feel lost and overwhelmed by the enormity of their child’s needs and who’ve lost themselves in the process of raising their children.

Having worked with families for 26 years, she’s witnessed countless mothers abandon themselves, their emotional needs, and their spiritual healing. So she created the Wildly Grounded in Self-Love Retreat happening October 16-21 on the Big Island of Hawai’i— a five-night, six-day luxe feeling + healing experience; a chance to say “yes” to yourself and your true desires in all areas of your life.
