Self-regulation refers to our ability to control our thinking,
behaviours, emotional reactions and social interactions to achieve our goals or react appropriately to the situation – even if it is difficult to do so. This book aims to support children to follow social conventions, be helpful, control their emotional reactions
and persist in the face of challenge. Hallmarks of social and emotional self-regulation.
