ABSTRACT
The article provides suggestions to parents to teach self-control to their children. When children learn to control their behavior, success in school will follow. There are two kinds of self-regulation: cognitive and social-emotional. Cognitive self-regulation is the degree to which children are reflective, can plan ahead, and can control their own behavior. Social-emotional self-regulation means being able to inhibit and delay gratification. It also means being able to follow a rule without a reminder. There are many factors that influence the development of both social-emotional and cognitive self-control. INSET: Tips That Teach Kids To Think First.
