Question and answer
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?
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. ] ]

what's Eriksons second stage autonomy vs. shame and doubt stage.
Weegy: Autonomy versus shame and doubt is the second stage of Erik Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development. This stage occurs between the ages of 18 months to approximately age two to three years. [ According to Erikson, children at this stage are focused on developing a greater sense of self-control. Gaining a sense of personal control over the world is important at this stage of development. Toilet training plays a major role; learning to control one’s body functions leads to a feeling of control and a sense of independence. Other important events include gaining more control over food choices, toy preferences and clothing selection. Children who successfully complete this stage feel secure and confident, while those who do not are left with a sense of inadequacy and self-doubt. ] (More)
