- How to relate & regulate with others
Why is emotion regulation important for my child?
One of the most obvious reasons you may want to help your child learn emotion regulation is that he or she will feel better! While we all want our children to be happy, emotional regulation is an important skills that is strongly tied to long-term well being, improved performance, better decision making, solid social relationships, and even improved overall health. We know that children with poor emotion regulation are often labeled as an “out of control child” or a “behavioral problem” in classroom settings. The lack of ability to regulate emotions reduces concentration in the classroom and may also lead to poor social skill development. A strong foundation in the skills will set your child up for success in all areas of his or her life!
