Self-Regulation/ Managing Emotions

Why is it important to consider as it relates to a child’s healthy development?Self-Regulation helps children to regulate their thoughts, control their urges, and manage their behavior. Through self-regulation, children develop social skills for relationship building and the skills to maintain emotional well-being. Difficulties with self-regulation during early childhood can be a predictive factor for the development of: developmental disorders, personality disorders, depression and anxiety.

Why issues may occur if self-regulation or emotion management is developed:-Children have not developed their control of their emotions or feelings. -Children may not know what emotions are. -Children may not understand feelings. -Children may not understand others have different feelings. -Children do not understand cause and effect. -Children do not demonstrate empathy. -Children may be taught to manage emotions in the incorrect way.-Children may be taught that emotions, outside of the classroom, are wrong.

Self-regulation is the ability to identify and understand feelings in one self and others and disconnect their feelings from their actions. Children who have self-regulation can manage their emotions and express their feelings in a proper manner with out becoming upset. These children are able to manage their emotions without much reassurance from another person. When children express their self-regulation they are able to understand their feelings and others and manage their emotions.
