Parents Model Self-Regulation

Your interactions with your child play an important role in her future capacity to self-regulate. Whenever you calm your own anxiety, control your anger, manage powerful emotions, or delay gratification, you are regulating your internal states. Modeling how you regulate your own emotions or behavior in various situations helps your child learn to do the same. For example, if you really want to go swimming before lunch, you could say, “Mommy would really love to go swimming right now, but I am going to wait until after I make lunch.”
