Supporting children’s self-regulation ages 3-5 years


In this module, we focus on how to help children learn to manage their own attention, emotion, thinking, and behaviour. Self-regulation develops rapidly in the early years, through experiences and relationships that shape brain development. What can you do to support children to develop these critical skills?
