Gaining self-regulation is a long, gradual process that depends on children internalizing the expectations of society. Without these skills, children may challenge authority, display explosiveness that harms others or destroy property, or remain incapable of delaying gratification, following through on instructions or effectively resolving conflicts. Anyone working with children today has experienced the results of not supporting the development of self-regulation. Now, it is time to discover the solutions. [EEC Core Comp Area 2]
