ECE 124: Help! How do I Teach my Children Self-Regulation? (1 hour)


Target Audience: Early Care and Education. This 1-hour course is an introduction to understanding self-regulation in young children.


If you have children in your care who are aggressive, have sleep difficulty, under-developed play skills or difficulty managing their energy level,  you likely have a child who cannot self-regulate. Young children who have developed self-regulation find it easier to take turns, make friends, adapt to routines, follow rules, and problem solve. In this course, you will understand what self-regulation is, what areas of difficulty are most frequently seen in children with self-regulation concerns, and the strategies you can implement to help children control their mood, calm themselves, and handle change.
