Insights into self-regulation

Self-regulation and executive functioning are consistently linked with the successful learning, including pre-reading skills, early maths and problem solving. Developing self-regulation helps children in really important and far reaching ways.

Being self-regulated or being very cognitively controlled, turns out to be really important. Lots of evidence suggests that this is probably thee development in early childhood that significantly predicts a whole range of academic educational outcomes but also general life outcomes, emotional well-being, ability to work in a group, ability to make friends, to develop as a well adjusted social being who can work well with others and in particular the ability to maintain and control ones attention on a task is very predictive of long term outcomes like that.
