Impulse Control and Emotion Regulation

Self-regulation is one of the most essential skills for school readiness. Well-regulated children can wait for a turn, resist the temptation to grab objects from other children, control negative emotions, and persist through challenging activities. In a New Zealand study, psychologists examined how children handled negative events during pretend plays. They found that children who had more pretend-plays with their caregivers were better at regulating their emotions to continue playing. Emotion regulation is not only essential for academic success, but it can also predict a child’s social success. In preschool, children who exhibit better emotional control are more likable and socially competent.
