A Basic Introduction to Self Regulation Difficulties
Self regulation problems are seen when children experience meltdowns or behaviour tantrums at an age that exceeds the toddler stage of development. As everyone knows it is normal for toddlers to struggle to contain their emotions but this is a skill they master as they mature. During this course Cherryl will explore the nature of these self regulation problems and she will also discuss what the causes might be. Cherryl will discuss how to spot a child who is struggling with self regulation and she will give some examples of self regulation.
