The Road to School Success: Promoting Self-Regulation and Social/Emotional Development FREE!

Research confirms that children need to have mastered self-control in order to be successful in school. Staying seated and quiet while the teacher is talking, being able to line-up and walk throughout the school without running ahead or misbehaving, waiting for a turn and learning that everyone cannot be first at the same time or all the time, and working independently and staying on task without being distracted or begging for help are all very difficult skills to learn. They also do not develop overnight nor are they taught through rewards and punishment. This session helps parents and teachers provide ideal activities and the right amount of structure to the environment to help each child develop self-control.
