Promoting Self-Regulation

Self-regulation is the ability to understand and manage your emotions and behaviour in response to things happening around you. It helps you to control your impulses (to make better decisions), to not over-react when upset or excited, and to be able to calm down after an incident, should one occur.

Strategies to promote self-regulation:

  1. Modelling - It is important for us to regulate our own emotions, before addressing our child’s.  Even if emotions are rising inside, it is important to present a calm front to the child.
  2. Talk about emotions - Find opportunities to talk about the range of emotions we all experience – how we all experience different feelings, it’s normal and it’s how we manage them that’s important.  Use story books, songs or games to make it fun.
