In this episode we will be looking self-regulation and I’m in conversation with Award Winning International Early Childhood Consultant and Author of ‘Self-Regulation Skills in Young Children’ Sue Asquith over on my Parentverse podcast – this is a podcast when I dig a little deeper and where I chat to global experts from around the world on all sorts of subjects related to raising happy, confident, resilient kids.
Self-regulation is the ability to understand and manage your own behaviour and reactions. Self-regulation helps toddlers learn, behave well, get along with others and become independent.
Self-regulation begins to develop rapidly in the toddler and preschooler years. It continues to develop into adulthood.
