Question and answer
Q: What would you recommend to a parent who asks you what he or she can do to promote his or her preschool child’s self-regulation skills?
A: The term "self-regulation" is used to refer to a range of characteristics and abilities. A child with self -regulatory skills is able to focus his attention, control his emotions and manage his thinking, behavior and feelings. [ [ Adults are very good at multitasking, but children are not. An adult can be cooking dinner, talking on the phone and thinking about what to make for dessert all at
the same time, whereas a child may go upstairs intending to brush his teeth and get distracted as soon as he sees a favorite toy at the top of the stairs. An adult can receive a present they dislike but still smile and thank the gift bearer graciously. A child will receive a gift they don't like and state "I don't want this!" and start to cry. Young children tend to live "in the moment" and are ruled by their impulses and their immediate desires or feelings, while adults can filter out distractions, exercise control and decide what is an "appropriate" response before we speak or act. ] ]
